Jahmi’us Ramsey is a skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball. He has put up big numbers early in the non-conference part of the college basketball season, but he has not often faced top teams, and he struggled to make shots in his team’s loss to Iowa. He’ll need to show that he can play well against elite competition and he’ll have to improve his playmaking skills, but he is a talented player that could go in the second round of the upcoming draft, as he may project to be a microwave type of scorer in the NBA.
