Josh Langford

Updated as of 4/8/2020, scouting report written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-5
Weight: 210
College: Michigan State
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 1/15/1997

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Good shooter, especially from deep
Strong scorer on the break
Decent scorer off the dribble
Adequate playmaker
Solid athlete

 
Cons:

Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Needs to improve his ball handling, especially when going to his left
Tends to force the issue on offense
Needs to improve his rebounding
His effort on defense can lag at times
Missed considerable time due to a foot injury

 
Summary:

Josh Langford is an athletic, 6-5 swingman that can shoot and score the basketball.  He missed most of his junior season due to a foot injury, and he will need to be a more consistent defender in games, but with a strong senior season, he could potentially end up being a second round pick in the 2021 draft.
