Austin Reaves is a skilled combo guard that can shoot and pass the basketball. After having played at Wichita State for his first two seasons, he has since transferred to play for Oklahoma.
He had a solid season on a very good Oklahoma team. He’ll need to be a more consistent outside shooter and he’ll need to improve his defensive skills. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
