Is JaJuan Johnson Out of His Mind?

Justin YoungContributor IMarch 29, 2009

I have heard reports that JuJuan Johnson is considering testing the NBA draft waters. What kind of advice and information is this young man receiving?

How high does he really think he would be drafted at the moment? I cannot fathom that he would be a first or maybe even second round pick at the moment.

He needs to come back for his junior season, add 15 to 20 pounds of muscle over the summer, and have another stellar season under his belt. He needs to work on his low-post game. Specifically working with his back to the basket.

He can face up ok, and he runs the floor well, but he has proven that he cannot defend true first round talent as of yet. He just doesn't have the horsepower.

Maybe I am being unfair, he can probably play at the next level in a year or two, but not yet. Let me know your thoughts.
