Jaylen Barford is an athletic, skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball. He can put up points in a hurry, but he also can sometimes be too inconsistent in games.
He had a tremendous showing at the 2018 Portsmouth Invitational as he led his team to win the championship at this event, and he could be a potential second round this year.
