Updated on 12/19/23.  Written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-9
Weight: 216
College: Virginia
Classification: Fifth-Year Senior
Birthdate: 4/5/2001

Projected Draft Range: Likely Undrafted

Pros:

Solid shooter
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Adequate playmaker for his size
Good size to play multiple positions

Cons:

Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Too passive on offense
Needs to improve his rebounding
Only an average athlete

Summary:

Jacob Groves is a mobile, skilled swingman that can shoot and score the basketball. He is only just recently a good outside shooter at the collegiate level, so he will need to prove that he can consistently shoot and defend upper-echelon opponents on a consistent basis. Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2024 draft.
