Emmitt Williams is an athletic, combo forward that excels at attacking the basket to garner scores. He scored a whopping 44 points at the Jordan Brand Classic. So far, he’s played fairly well as a sophomore this year, but it’s uncertain if his game will translate well to the NBA. He’s an undersized big man that doesn’t possess a whole lot of perimeter skills, and he’ll need to show that he can consistently be able to guard upper-echelon players. Right now, he may be a borderline second round candidate for the 2020 draft.
