Summary:

Sharife Cooper is a speedy, skilled playmaker that can score and pass the basketball.  He can quickly get into the lane, and he can score in a variety of ways.  However, he will need to improve his outside shot, and he can sometimes play too recklessly that may lead to missed shots and turnovers. 

He had a stellar season debut on January 9th, as he scored 26 points and had 9 assists in his team’s loss to Alabama. Cooper had a good freshman season. His ability to score and make plays on offense could enable him to go in the mid to late first round range for the 2021 draft.
