Jackson Rowe is a strong, mobile combo forward that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. Hailing from Toronto, Canada, he can make shots from all over the floor, and he had a solid senior season at Cal State Fullerton. He’s a career 37% three-point shooter, and he is a solid marksman from beyond the arc.
On the downside, he played at a small D1 school, so there will be questions about the level of competition he’s faced, as he may be facing a considerable jump from that level to the NBA. Right now, Rowe may be a long shot to be drafted by a team in the NBA, but his ability to knock down shots could potentially allow him to compete for a roster spot in the association.
