Jalen Suggs is a very athletic, skilled basketball player that can score in a variety of ways, and he can finish numerous plays above the rim.  He is also a rangy defender that can collect plenty of steals and blocks, and he can cover a lot of ground defensively.  Sometimes though, he also can tend to force the issue too much, which can lead him to commit turnovers.  Still, Suggs is a very talented prospect that currently projects to be a top 5 pick in the 2021 draft.
