Height: 6-2

Weight: 195

College: Connecticut

Classification: Senior

Birthdate: 12/11/1995

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Adequate scorer off the dribble

Decent playmaker

Decent rebounder for his size

Decent defender

Good athlete

Cons:

Summary:

Jalen Adams is a quick guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he also is an adequate playmaker that can get plenty of assists.

However, sometimes he can have shot selection issues, which may hurt his shooting percentages, and he can play too wildly on offense elsewhere.  But with a strong senior season, he could potentially end up being a second round pick for the upcoming draft.
