David Johnson is an athletic, skilled combo guard that has a variety of skills that could prove to be useful at the next level. He had a breakout game in his team’s road win over Duke, as he scored 19 points, and notched 7 assists, 4 rebounds, 3 steals, and 2 blocks off the bench to get his team the victory. Johnson is a talented playmaker that can deftly run the point, and he projects to be a mid first round pick in the 2021 draft.
