After having two nondescript seasons off the bench, Matt Farrell put together a solid junior year for Notre Dame, as he demonstrated a very good ability to shoot, pass the basketball, and run the point.
His less than ideal size and physical tools may make it difficult for him to climb up draft boards, but Farrell’s strong production last year and intriguing skill set could potentially make him a candidate to be a backup point guard in the NBA. At the moment, he may be a borderline second round candidate in 2018.
