Summary:
Justin Champagnie is an athletic, energetic swingman that had a good sophomore season for Pittsburgh.  He can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he is a terrific rebounder that can haul in many boards to help his team on offense.  On the downside, he can sometimes be prone to taking questionable shots, and he will need to show teams that he can guard upper-echelon players on a consistent basis.  Right now, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
