Ryan Hawkins is a skilled forward that can shoot and score the basketball. He doesn’t possess overwhelming athleticism, but he can knock down shots, especially on mid-range jumpers and threes, and off the catch. On the other hand, he will need to improve his playmaking and defensive skills. Still, Hawkins has been productive as a senior at Creighton, and his jump shot could enable him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA someday.
