* Good shooter (left-handed)
* Can score off the bounce
* Great speed with the ball in transition
* Great body control
* Rugged defender
* Great competitor
* Doesn’t have ideal shooting guard size
Some mock drafts have DJO listed as a second-round pick, others don’t include him. Clearly, because he’s not the prototypical two-guard size, it’ll take a team with a specific need to draft him. But many shooting guards have survived in the league without being 6-foot-6. Johnson-Odom can score, and he’s tough. There are a lot of teams that need those commodities.
DJO earned first-team All-Big East and honorable mention All-America honors by the Associated Press after finishing among the league leaders in scoring (2nd, 18.3 ppg), free-throw percentage (14th, .764), 3-point field goal percentage (7th, .385) and 3-pointers per game (4th, 2.26). DJO helped league Marquette to the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16.
18.3 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 2.7 apg, 2.3 tpg, 0.9 spg, 32.9 mpg, .447 FG, .385 3PT, .764 FT
In just three seasons, Johnson-Odom finished 11th on the Marquette’s all-time scoring list with 1,649 points, fourth in 3-pointers made (221), eighth in 3-pointers attempted (549) and ninth in 3-point field goal percentage (.403).
Reminds me of:
What Insiders Say:
Marquette coach Buzz Williams
"He's a very special player, but he's an even more special person, and maybe more so than any player I've coached, he senses when I'm mad at him. The same exact thing happened when we played at UConn. I'm mad at him, I yank him in and out of the game. He gives the typical player response, 'I can't get into the flow.' But he tries to prove me wrong. Those two shots [3-pointers in a win over West Virginia], you could argue, changed the game. Definitely changed the momentum."
What Outsiders Say:
Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy
"He’s a powerful combo guard capable of igniting scoring runs at any time."
