Jacob Gilyard is an agile, skilled playmaker that helped lead Richmond to get to the 2022 NCAA Tournament. He scored 24 points to lead them to an upset win over Iowa, and he is a poised player that can make shots in a variety of ways. He’s also a savvy facilitator that can rack up assists, and he’s a pesky defender that will get many steals for his team. He doesn’t possess great size for his position, but his skill level and intangibles could enable him to make his way to the NBA when his collegiate career ends.
