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 has been productive in his role for his team, and he may project well into a shooting specialist role in the NBA.
