LJ Figueroa was one of the nations top players this past season at St. John. Prior to LJ’s collegiate career, the guard/forward was a standout at West Oaks Academy in Orlando,FL. During his time at West Oaks LJ was a top performer at the 2016 HoopMIA The Warmup. LJ is heading to Oregon and teaming up with fellow Dominican National teammate Chris Duarte.
Before signing to St. Johns (NY), the Figueroa spent a year playing JUCO at Odessa College in Texas. Last year at St. Johns LJ averaged an impressive 14.5 ppg, 4.5 rpg, and 2.1 apg.
With the loss of CJ Walker this week the addition of Figs is critical for the ducks success. Over last few years the ducks have produced a few NBA wings such as: Dillon Brooks, Tyler Dorsey, Jordan Bell, & Kenny Wooten.
