Jaylen Adams is a smart, skilled offensive minded point guard that can effectively run the team. He can score in a variety of ways, and he can be a table setter that can create offense for himself and his teammates off of pick and rolls.
On the other hand, he may not have great length or athleticism for his position, and he can take some questionable shots. Right now, Adams may be one of most talented point guards in college basketball, and he may be a solid candidate to be selected in the second round in 2018.
