Summary:

Johni Broome is a strong, mobile big man that played very well for Morehead State this past season.  He recently decided to transfer to Auburn. He is a gifted low post scorer that can often score on the block, and he also is a solid interior defender that can block numerous shots in the paint.  He will need to improve his playmaking skills and extend his shooting range, but he is a very productive player that could be a solid pick for an NBA team in the second round of the 2025 draft.
