Summary:

Ashton Hagans is a young, speedy point guard that reclassified to be in the 2018 recruiting class, and he enrolled to play at Kentucky.   He is a pass-first point guard that will look to get assists, and he is also a tough, aggressive defender that will go for steals and can lock down his man.

On the other hand, he will need to improve his jump shot and cut down on turnovers.  Right now, Hagans projects to be a second round prospect for the 2020 draft.  He will need to significantly improve his jump shot, but he may have the skills to end up being a solid role player in the NBA.
