Jalen Wilson is an athletic, skilled combo forward that can score the basketball in a variety of ways, as he excels attacking the basket to do so, and he also can make spot-up threes. While Ochai Agbaji and Marcus Garrett have drawn most of the attention from draft analysts prior to the start of the season amongst Kansas’ players, Wilson has flown under the radar and has played well as a freshman this year. If he continues to play well, he could swiftly move up draft boards later this season.
