R.J. Cole is an agile, skilled playmaker that can shoot and pass the basketball. He played his first two seasons at Howard before transferring to Connecticut. He had an up-and-down junior season at Connecticut last year, and he’ll need to be a more consistent player in games. Currently, he is a borderline second round candidate for the 2022 draft.
