Cormac Ryan is a smart, skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball.  He made 7 threes in his team’s first round win over Rutgers in the 2022 NCAA Tournament, and he thrived as a sharpshooter and scorer for his team in that game.  He was productive in his role at Notre Dame, and he then transferred to North Carolina. Despite struggling with his jump shot this year, he is a skilled marksman that may project well into a shooting specialist role in the NBA.
