Position: Small Forward
Hometown: Cincinnati, OH
AAU: Ohio Basketball Club
Evaluation: Athletic scoring wing with a smooth handle and ability to get in the lane Josh is one of Ohio’s most talented ’13 prospects. While he might still be on the skinny side he has the leaping ability to finish around the rim and the array of moves to keep defenders guessing. Still developing a consistent jumpshot but shows signs of being a good shooter when he has balance. Sees the court well thanks to an improved handle and with his length and speed he should continue to improve as a defender. Tremendous rebounding guard who goes above the rim to grab the ball.
Bottom Line: Still very raw but has the potential to be a special player in this class. A long and fluid athlete with the developing ball skills to become unstoppable high major schools are cautious about missing the boat while mid-majors are all over him at the present time.
Notes: Committed to Winthrop.
