Decent rebounder for his size
Fairly good defender that can get steals and blocks
Gifted athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting

Prone to hoisting up questionable shots

Summary:

Keon Johnson is a very athletic, energetic combo guard that can quickly get to the rim to score at will, and he is a fairly solid defender that can apply heavy ball pressure and cover a lot of ground on the defensive end.  He will need to improve his jump shot and decision-making ability, but he is a talented prospect that currently projects to be a lottery pick in the 2021 draft.
