Jaylin Williams is an athletic big man that played very well for Arkansas this season.  He can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he also is a good passing big man.  He’s also an active rebounder and defender, but he will need to improve his jump shot and be more focused defensively on a consistent basis.  Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2022 draft.
