The Players to Watch for Florida

Keyontae Johnson 6-5 231.0 Forward

Keyontae Johnson sported a 23.9 Player Efficiency Rate (PER) last season. He is among the best in the conference and even in the country as far as his on-the-court contributions. Definitely, a player to watch and opponents will have him scouted. Keyontae Johnson had a 8.5 Box Score Plus/Minus impact last season. When he is on the floor, he makes a MAJOR positive impact. He is considered one of the key players on the floor when he is out there playing.

Offensive Breakdown

Keyontae Johnson attempted 0.259% of his shots from three point range. Last season, he did not stand out as a player who attempted a lot of shots from downtown. Keyontae Johnson shot 0.38% from long range last season. He is considered an above-average three point shooter and a threat who must be contained on the perimeter. Keyontae Johnson shot 0.602% inside the perimeter. He gets his work done inside the restricted arc and has shown a strong ability to finish at the rim while showing great restraint to avoid less optimal shots. He is among the most efficient in his ability to score. As a shooter regardless of where he is, he makes something damaging happen for opponents.

You can expect him to crash the boards on a consistent basis on the offensive end, his success is better than most. His ability to distribute the ball to his teammates is on-par with others in College Basketball. He is among the best in the country at not turning the ball over.

Defensive Breakdown

Keyontae Johnson has shown that he may be an elite defensive player going into this season and the expectation is that it should not change. Windex has found their new pitchman and his abilities on the defensive glass certainly warrant such a Dick Vitale-ism. His ability to block shots is generally unimportant, it is not an important part of his defensive game. Watch out on the passing lanes, he will use his length and athleticism to force turnovers. He may even pick your pocket, opponents should be wary.
