NBA Draft prospect: Jalen Johnson, Duke
In one of Duke’s most disappointing seasons in modern NCAA history, Jalen Johnson left a bit to be desired during his freshman season in college. Still, his measurables and potential are what will make him a top 10 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.
Johnson is a versatile 6-foot-9 prospect that could end up playing everywhere on the floor at the next level. He averaged 11 points and six rebounds per game on 53 percent shooting from the field overall and 44 percent shooting from 3-point range.
He may not have the accolades of some of the other prospects ranked higher on this list, but I believe has a strong chance at emerging as one of the best players to emerge from this draft class. Especially if he lands in the right situation.
