Nick Smith is a very athletic combo guard that is projected to go very high in the 2023 draft. He is a jump shooter that can score in bunches, and he also can make impressively athletic plays on both sides of the ball. However, he can sometimes be prone to taking questionable shots that can hurt his shooting percentages. He is a talented prospect that could be a lottery pick in 2023.
