Jaylen Clark is a strong, athletic swingman that had a good junior season at UCLA this year.  He excels at making energetic hustle plays on both ends of the floor, but he will need to show that he can be a consistent outside shooter in games.  Towards the end of this past season, Clark went down to an unfortunate Achilles injury. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2023 draft.
