Jarron Cumberland

Updated as of 8/4/2020, scouting report written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-5
Weight: 210
College: Cincinnati
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 9/22/1997

2020 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 88
Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Decent scorer off the dribble
Adequate shooter
Fairly good playmaker
Decent defender
Solid athlete

Cons:

Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Shooting percentages were down this season
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
Needs to improve his rebounding
Can have lapses defensively
Not an elite athlete

Summary:

Jarron Cumberland is a tough, physical player that is a solid facilitator with the ball in his hands, and he can also score the basketball in a variety of ways.  He is a tall ball handler that can comfortably run the point, and he can also put up points in a hurry.

On the downside, he struggled to consistently knock down jump shots this season, as his shooting percentages were considerably down from last season.  He may not be elite at any one skill, but he could project to be a 3 and D type of player in the association, and he may end up being a second round pick in the 2020 draft.
