A top-100 recruit who ranked as high as 27th on some lists (ESPN.com), Marquette freshman JaJuan Johnson has benefitted from having an accomplished player to look up to and train with.

Atlanta Hawks guard Louis Williams is Johnson's uncle. Williams, who enters his ninth NBA season in 2013-14, has helped Johnson in his basketball progression by including him in off-season training through the years.

It's no cakewalk for the younger Johnson, but it's given him perspective on what it takes to be successful.

"I try to compare my game to his," he said. "It's hard because they're NBA workouts."
