Josh Carlton is a strong, mobile big man that played at Connecticut before transferring to Houston. He has been a solid interior player for his team this year, and he’s helped lead them to get to the 2022 NCAA Tournament. He will need to continue to improve his offensive skill set, but his ability to defend and make plays in the paint could enable him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA someday.
