Puff Johnson is an athletic, high-motor forward that had a very good showing in the 2022 NCAA Championship game, and he scored 11 points and grabbed 6 rebounds off the bench in his team’s loss to Kansas.  He will need to stay in school to hone and develop his overall game, but a strong season at Penn State next year could make him a legitimate NBA prospect for the 2024 draft.
