Keegan Murray is an athletic, high-motor combo forward that has been having a very good sophomore season. He is a skilled, versatile scorer that can make shots in a variety of ways, and he also is a solid shot blocker and defender. He will need to be a more consistent outside shooter on the court, but his blend of scoring, defense, and versatile could enable him to go in the lottery of the 2022 draft.
