Romeo Weems is an athletic swingman that score and defend when he is out on the floor. He has shown a good set of all-around skills in the FIBA junior tournaments, and he also played at the Jordan Brand Classic.
This past season, Weems was able to play well at times, but he was far too passive on offense. He will need to assert himself as he has a tendency to fade into the background too much, and he will need to be a more consistent shooter in games. Currently, he is a borderline second round candidate in the 2021 draft.
