Obadiah Noel is an athletic combo guard that excels at attacking the hoop to score the basketball. He will need to improve his playmaking skills and also show that he can guard upper-echelon opponents on a consistent basis. He may be a long shot to be drafted, but his ability to score could enable him to carve out a solid playing career in professional basketball.
