Jabari Smith is a very athletic, skilled forward that has a solid set of all-around skills. He can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he also can guard multiple positions. He will need to improve his shot selection, but he is a very talented prospect that could be a top 5 pick in the 2022 draft.
