Alex Barcello is a skilled playmaker that can shoot and pass the basketball. He played two seasons at Arizona before transferring to BYU, and he has shot the ball very well at BYU. He will need to improve his defense and show that he can consistently play well against more athletic opponents. Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2022 draft.
