Justin Johnson is a tough, physical combo forward that will make high-motor plays on both ends of the floor to help his team in games.  He helped his team go far in the NIT, and he also helped his team get the championship game win at Portsmouth.

He will need to show teams that he can comfortably play out on the perimeter and fare well against upper-echelon athletes at the next level, but his good performance in this tournament could likely help him land a spot on an NBA team’s summer league roster.
