Josiah James is an athletic swingman that can pass and rebound the basketball. He is a player that may project to be a defensive specialist at the next level, but he will need to improve his jump shot, shot selection, and assertiveness on the offensive end. Right now, he may be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
