Summary:
Jalen Tate is an agile, skilled point forward that can do a little bit of everything when he is on the floor at Arkansas.  He is having a solid senior season for his team this year, and his team is playing very well this year.  Tate has flown under the radar as a draft prospect and can sometimes fade into the background too much, but his size, playmaking, and defensive skills could allow him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA next season.
