Not an elite athlete
Not a true point guard, but is undersized to play the two
Jaden Shackelford is an agile, skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball. He played really well in his team’s December 4th win over Gonzaga, as he scored 28 points to help Alabama get the victory. He is an underrated prospect that can score in a variety of ways, and he could be a solid pick for an NBA team in the late first to the second round range of the 2022 draft.
