Pros:

Adequate shooter from all over the floor
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Very good free throw shooter
Solid playmaker that handles the ball well
Good rebounder for a player his size
Solid defensive player that can rack up steals
Good athlete
Great motor
Smart player that has a good feel for the game

May lack an elite first step off the dribble

Not an elite athlete
Relative late bloomer​

Summary:

Jevon Carter has flown under the radar all year long, and he was the best player on a West Virginia team that almost was able to defeat a really good Gonzaga team in the Sweet 16 last season.  This year, he had a very good senior season, and he played really well on both ends of the floor this year.

He is a tough, gritty playmaker that will also get after it on the defensive end, as he may be the best defender among prospects at the point guard position.  With his skill set, he could end up being a good pick for an NBA team in the second round on draft day.
