DeJon Jarreau is a tall, athletic playmaker that could project to be a defensive specialist in the NBA. He has good size and athleticism to play the point, and he is a solid defender amongst prospects that play that position. He will need to significantly improve offensively though, as he will need to work on his jump shot and cut down on turnovers on offense. Right now, he may be a long shot to be drafted, but if he makes strides to improve on offense, he could end up being a solid role player in the NBA.
