Height: 6-5
Weight: 195
College: Oregon State
Classification: Senior

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:
Fairly good scorer off the dribble
Adequate shooter
Can post up smaller players
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Fairly good playmaker
Adequate defender
Above average athlete
Versatile player that can play multiple positions

Cons:
Inconsistent shooter
Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Needs to improve his rebounding
May struggle to guard quicker players
Not an elite athlete

Summary:
He is an agile, skilled combo guard that helped lead Oregon State to win the Pac-12 Tournament to help his team get to the 2021 NCAA Tournament.  He is a solid facilitator that also can knock down outside shots, but he will need to be a more consistent shooter, and he will need to improve his defense.  Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2021 draft.
