Ron Harper Jr. is an athletic, energetic swingman that could project to be a solid role player in the NBA.  He is a high-motor player that runs the floor well, and he has good hands that allows him to finish numerous plays above the rim to score the basketball. 

He is a solid outside shooter, and he is an active defender that can make plays on the ball to get stops for his team.  He had a solid junior season. He will still need to trust his outside shot more, and he lacks elite foot speed or quickness, but he is a talented player that is a second round prospect in the 2022 draft.
