Shakeel Moore is a very athletic, skilled lead guard that can make highlight-reel worthy plays, as he can score on magnetic dunks off of drives and in transition. He is also a solid defender that can lock up his man, and he can rake in steals and blocks for his team. However, he will need to improve his ability to knock down jumpers from long range and also show that he can effectively run the point on a consistent basis. Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2023 draft.
