AAU Team: Brad Beal Elite
High School: Link Year Prep
Strengths: Josh is as athletic as they come, with the ability to jump out of the gym. Josh has a strong build with his body which helps him with rebounding on both ends. His athleticism helps him be an incredible defender as well. He’s got a tight handle and is very crafty with the way he gets to the rim.
Improvement Opportunity: Josh is taking a prep year to fine tune his game and improve his outside shot. His outside shot is a work in progress, which he really needs to work to develop during his prep year. Other than working on his outside shot, Josh needs to work on his court vision as well as he was missing his teammate who was wide open when he was driving to the lane and the defenders were crashing.
Projection: Right now I see Josh as a LM+/MM+ prospect. If he fixes the hitch in his shot and can prove that he can consistently knock down the three- pointer, he could easily be on a HM program’s radar. He has all the gifts athletically that a program should covet.
