Jarrett Culver is an athletic swingman that can do a little bit of everything when he is on the court. He has the versatility to be a fill in the blanks player for his team, and he also can project into a 3 and D role at the next level.
He played well as a sophomore, and he had a solid showing against Duke at the Madison Square Garden earlier this season. However, he’s also been streaky with his jump shot, which has hurt his shooting percentages. Culver can shoot, score, and defend, and he is a very skilled player that could likely be a lottery pick in 2019.
