Josh Okogie is an athletic swingman that can shoot and score the basketball.  He is a young, athletic shooting guard that had a strong combine showing, and he measured really well, as he has a 7 foot wingspan, and tested to have a max vertical leap of 42 inches.​

In addition, he also played well in the combine scrimmages.  Okogie may be an intriguing prospect that could end up getting selected in the first round of the 2018 NBA Draft.
