Kobe Bufkin is an athletic, energetic combo guard that is having a solid sophomore season for Michigan. He is an aggressive scorer that can make shots in a variety of ways. Bufkin is a downhill driver that can consistently get to the rim, and he also has shown an improved jump shot lately. He also can make high-impact plays defensively, and he is a pretty good shot blocker for his size. He will need to be a more consistent outside shooter, but his ability to make plays on both ends of the floor could make him a solid second round prospect for the 2023 draft.
