Jaden Springer is an athletic, skilled combo guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He excels at finishing plays above the rim, and he also is a solid low post scoring guard that excels at making shots in the paint. He will need to take more outside shots in games and improve his decision-making ability, but he is a talented prospect that projects to go in the mid to late first round in the 2021 draft.
