Summary:

P.J. Dozier is an athletic, tall combo guard that may have an intriguing set of skills.  He can play multiple positions, as he is a very good passer and ball handler, and he can get into the lane to garner scores off the dribble.

However, despite showing an improved jump shot recently, he really struggled to make jumpers last year as a freshman.  Dozier was also quite turnover prone, as he can be quite mistake prone despite being labelled as a big point guard.

​Dozier does rebound the ball fairly well for a player his size, and he is a good defensive player that is active and alert on that end of the floor, and he can come away with many steals.  On the other hand, he can be prone to committing touch fouls on occasion.​

Right now, P.J. Dozier is having a strong NCAA Tournament, and he is a versatile playmaker that can help a team in a variety of ways.  With his skill set, he could be a good find for a team in the late first to the second round range of the upcoming draft.
