Summary:

Collin Sexton is a vastly athletic point guard that could potentially be a top 5 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.  He is a gifted shot creator that can get many scores off the dribble as well as on fast breaks, and he is a creative playmaker that can set up numerous scores for his teammates.​

Plus, he also is a good rebounder for a player his size, and he can hound the opposition to force them to commit many turnovers.  However, Sexton can play too wildly on offense at times.  Also, he lacks great size to play the point, as he may have more trouble guarding players on switches.

But right now, Sexton is a terrific talent, and he is a player that possesses a ton of upside, as he could end up being one of the best players to come out of the 2018 NBA Draft.
