Summary:

Markus Howard is an athletic, skilled combo guard that can really shoot and score the basketball.  He had a 52-point game in his team’s win over Providence that helped create a lot of buzz for him, and he is a prolific scorer from all over the court.​

On the other hand, he will still need to improve in the other facets of the game, but if he continues to play well, he could end up being a second round pick in 2020.
