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 for the 2020-21 season.

Unfortunately, against Florida State early in the game, he collapsed shortly after having scored on an alley-oop dunk.  Johnson has since recovered, but he had to 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. Recently, Johnson decided to transfer to Kansas State to play for them during the 2022-23 college basketball season.
