Draft experts consider Johnson to be in the undrafted- to late-second round category. He’s a productive and versatile scorer with decent size and he can rebound, so he’ll have a chance to get into an NBA camp regardless of whether he’s drafted.
Johnson was chosen his team’s co-MVP after a season in which he helped lead the Flyers to a 20-13 record and a third straight trip to the NIT. He was at his best against power conference competition: 20 points against Alabama, 18 against Minnesota, 16 against Seton Hall and Ole Miss, 12 against Wake Forest.
12.4 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 1.3 apg, 1.6 tpg, 0.7 spg, 0.6 bpg, 29.7 mpg, .465 FG, .397 3PT, .859 FT
Johnson is the only college basketball player in the last 20 years to accumulate 1,400 points, 800 rebounds, 300 offensive rebounds and 200 three-pointers while shooting at least 80 percent from the free-throw line.
Reminds me of:
What Insiders Say:
Dayton coach Archie Miller
“He’s one of those kids who has a little edge on him about where he is today, how he got here and how hard it was.”
What Outsiders Say:
Georgia Tech (and former Dayton) coach Brian Gregory
“One thing I liked about him when I recruited him is he scored almost all his baskets around the hoop by slashing, cutting, offensive-rebounding, posting. He just had a knack, a knack to make plays and a knack to rebound by pursuing the ball and getting out-of-area rebounds. That’s continued [in college].”
