Jaylen Hands is an athletic, skilled point guard that can knock down jumpers to garner scores for his team.  But he will need to be a more consistent player in games, and learn to play under control more.​

He’s a skilled offensive player that can make shots and pass the ball when he is on his game, and he could be a second round pick in 2019.​
