Blake Wesley is an athletic, energetic combo guard that had a solid freshman season at Notre Dame this year. He is an aggressive scorer that will make high-motor plays at the rim, and he also can throw down highlight reel-worthy dunks. He’s also a capable position defender that will apply solid ball pressure and stay in front of his man. He’ll need to improve his jump shot and be more consistent in games, but his athleticism, motor, and upside could enable him to be a first round pick in the 2022 draft.
