Jalen Wilson is an athletic, skilled combo forward that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He’s showed his versatility, motor, and tenacity to help Kansas win the 2022 National Championship. Wilson was very productive for Kansas this past season. Wilson excels at attacking the hoop to score the basketball, and he especially thrives at making hustle plays, but will need to be a more consistent outside shooter in the meantime. He currently projects to go in the second round in the 2023 draft.
