Adequate rebounder for his size

Summary:
Jahvon Blair is an agile, skilled combo guard that helped his team get to the 2021 NCAA Tournament.  He’s posted fairly mediocre shooting percentages throughout his collegiate career, but he is a fleet-footed playmaker that can put up points in a hurry. 

He can provide instant offense when he gets into a rhythm, and he can get any shot he wants on the floor.  He’s excelled in a sixth man role in the Big East Tournament, and he currently projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2021 draft.
