Jaden Hardy is a very athletic, skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball. He can score from anywhere on the floor, as he can pull up to effortlessly knock down threes from beyond the arc, and he can consistently drive the ball to the basket to score at the rim. He can sometimes play too recklessly and he can tend to be a ball stopper on offense, which can lead to some spotty shot selection and turnovers. Still, he is a very talented player, and he currently projects to be a top 5 pick in the 2022 draft.
