2020 rankings were finalized on 11/17/20.
Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted
Decent scorer off the dribble
Good rebounder for his size
Solid defender that can rack up steals
May have shot selection issues
Can be too scoring focused on offense
A bit undersized for his position
Not a true point guard, but is undersized to play the two
Christian Vital is an athletic, energetic combo guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he is also a solid defender. He can knock down threes, finish plays above the rim, and he also will play tough defense and get plenty of steals in games.
On the other hand, he’s tended to post low assist totals yearly, and he’s posted low field-goal percentages as he’s made less than 40% of his field goals in three of his four seasons. Vital is an athletic guard that can make some impressive plays on the court, but he will need to improve his shot selection and show that he can effectively run the point at the NBA level. Right now, he projects to be a borderline second-round candidate for the 2020 draft.
