Shakur Juiston is an athletic, high motor combo forward that will crash the basket to garner points and rebounds in the paint for his team.
At 6-7, he will be undersized to play inside at the next level, and he will likely need to significantly improve his perimeter skills. But there is no doubt that he was quite productive as a junior last year. While NBA scouts and teams will want to know how well he returns from a knee injury, if things go well for him, he could end up being a potential second round pick in 2020.
