Ricky Council IV is an athletic, energetic swingman that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He has a quick first step that enables him to score on strong drives to the hoop, and he also can knock down threes from beyond the arc. He’s an unheralded prospect that has flown under the radar, but if he can continue to progress and hone his game, he could project to be a 3 and D type of role player in the NBA.
