Kellan Grady is a skilled combo guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He is a crafty scorer off the dribble, he can score off of cuts, and he also can knock down threes. He is not overwhelmingly athletic though, and he will need to show that he can hold his own against elite competition. Recently, Grady transferred to Kentucky, and that is a good acquisition for them. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2022 draft.
