Updated as of 8/4/20.  Scouting report written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-5
Weight: 185
College: Houston
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 1/23/1998

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Can post up smaller players
Adequate playmaker
Good rebounder for his size
Solid defender
Good athlete
Good motor

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Struggles to score in traffic
Prone to hoisting up questionable shots
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
Can have lapses defensively
Emotions can get the best of him

Summary:

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.
