Jacob Young is an athletic, skilled playmaker that had a good senior season this year at Rutgers. He didn’t post great shooting percentages when he was at Texas or last year, but he excelled as a shooter and scorer this past season, though he was fairly turnover prone on offense. Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate in the 2022 draft.
