Baylor Scheierman is an agile, skilled swingman that can shoot and pass the basketball. He can make step-back jumpers, and he has a lot of range on his shot. He also sees the floor well, and he can throw very long, accurate passes to effortlessly rack up assists. He also is a good rebounder. On the downside, he will need to improve on the defensive end, as he can tend to be unfocused, and he tends to struggle to guard players out on the perimeter.
Scheierman recently withdrew from the draft and announced that he will transfer to Creighton. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2023 draft.
