Jaylen Nowell is a skilled combo guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he also is an above average facilitator on offense.  He can play either backcourt position, and he has had a solid sophomore season.

On the other hand, he is a bit undersized to play out on the wing and played in a zone defensive scheme, so he will need to adjust to playing in a man-to-man defense at the next level.  Right now, Nowell may be a second round prospect for the upcoming draft.
