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

Inconsistent shooter
Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Needs to improve his rebounding

Not an elite athlete

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, and he led them to an Elite Eight appearance this past season.  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 second round prospect in the 2021 draft.
