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.
