Summary:

Jay Scrubb is a very athletic swingman that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.  He excels at scoring in the open court, and he also can get numerous scores off the dribble.  He also is a fairly good shooter that can knock down plenty of outside shots, though he struggled to shoot as well from beyond the arc this season.

There will be sizable concerns about him making the jump from the junior college ranks to the NBA if he declares for the 2020 draft, but some feel that he may be talented enough to possibly warrant first round consideration.  Scrubb has entered the 2020 draft, and while it may be a significant gamble to take a prospect that is going directly from junior college to the NBA, Scrubb is a talented prospect that could be worth taking in the second round on draft day.
