Fans always love to see a player with a killer mindset, and it seems like Keldon Johnson may be that guy on Kentucky’s roster next year.
Johnson is currently in Atlanta practicing for the McDonald’s All-American game, and told Kentucky Sports Radio’s Nick Roush that he has a “dominate and kill” mindset.
“I came here to dominate, kill and when I go back to Oak Hill I’ll have the same mindset: dominate and kill.”
And so far, you can get a glimpse of Johnson’s aggressive mentality through a few videos of today’s action:

Johnson was also one of Rivals’ top standouts from Monday:
Energy was not a problem for Kentucky-bound wing Keldon Johnson. I thought his effort was as strong as anybody I saw on Monday and he did a great job of making things happen without being selfish. He’s a pretty polished scorer with a nice and balanced three level -- rim, mid range and deep -- game.
Johnson has led his Oak Hill squad to compete for a national championship, where they will play on Thursday. The tournament, which takes place in New York, goes from Thursday to Saturday. Updates on the tournament can be found on Twitter @whosnexths.
For a look at Johnson, he will be participating in the Powerade Jam Fest Slam Dunk Contest tonight on ESPN2 at 7 p.m.
Johnson’s fellow Kentucky signee, Immanuel Quickley, is also in Atlanta for the McDonald’s All-American game. Tyler Herro was not selected for the McDonald’s game, but was invited to participate in the Jordan Brand Classic (April 8) and the Nike Hoop Summit (April 13).
