Jordan Hawkins is an agile, skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball. He is having a standout sophomore season, and he scored 20 points and made 6 threes to lift his team to a blowout win over Gonzaga. He also helped his team win the National Championship in the 2023 NCAA Tournament. Hawkins is a sharpshooter that could end up going in the lottery, and he would be a very good pick for an NBA team in the mid first round range of the 2023 draft.
