Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 3/25/2002

Projected Draft Range: Likely Undrafted

Decent scorer off the dribble
Adequate playmaker
Solid defender that can rack up steals
Solid athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Can display spotty shot selection

Undersized for his position

Summary:

Jalen Cook is an agile, skilled point guard that is having a solid junior season for Tulane right now. He can attack the basket to get points and assists, and he will also play tough, hard-nosed defense. He will need to improve his jump shot and he lacks ideal size to play the point, but his ability to run the point and make plays on both ends of the floor could enable him to make a team’s roster in the NBA someday.
