Good scorer off the dribble

Keyontae Johnson is an athletic, skilled swingman that can do a little bit of everything when he is out on the floor. He is a solid scorer that can make shots in a variety of ways, and he also is a very good rebounder for a player his size. He had a solid sophomore season, and Johnson came back to play for Florida this year.
Unfortunately, against Florida State early in the game, he collapsed shortly after having scored on an alley-oop dunk. Johnson has since recovered, but will miss the rest of the season due to a heart condition that is known as acute myocarditis. It is uncertain if he will return to play basketball in the future, but he was projected as a late first round prospect for the 2021 draft when he was healthy.
