Devon Dotson

Updated as of 6/1/2020, scouting report written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-1
Weight: 185
College: Kansas
Classification: Sophomore
Birthdate: 8/2/1999

2020 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 21
Projected Draft Range: Late 1st to 2nd Round

Pros:

Good scorer off the dribble
Adequate shooter
Decent playmaker
Adequate rebounder for his size
Decent defender that can get steals
Solid athlete

Cons:

Inconsistent long-range shooter
Can be turnover prone
Can play too wildly on offense
Can be out of position defensively
Not a true point guard, but is undersized to play the two

Summary:

Devon Dotson is an athletic, skilled playmaker that will attack the basket to garner scores, and he is also a good defensive player.  He was able to show improved decision making skills at the point this year, but he struggled to consistently make long-range jumpers this season.

Dotson is a gifted scorer that can effectively run a team at the point, but his inconsistent shooting and relatively low assist totals for a player his size throughout his career could be sources of concerns.  Still, Dotson’s ability to score combined with having strong athletic gifts could enable him to be a first round pick in the 2020 draft.
