R.J. Nembhard is an athletic, skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball. He played very well in his team’s win over Oklahoma State, as he scored 21 points and made 3 threes to get his team the victory. His shooting percentages have fluctuated over the years, but he had a solid season overall, and he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
