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.
