Josh Christopher is a very athletic combo guard that can take the ball to the rim to score the basketball, and he can finish plays above the rim. He’ll need to improve his jump shot and he can tend to force up too many rushed shots, which can hurt his shooting percentages. Still, he is a talented prospect that could be a first round pick in 2021.
