Terquavion Smith is an athletic combo guard that recently played his freshman season at NC State.  He can knock down shots from beyond the arc, and he also can finish plays above the rim.  He also is a pesky defender that can get steals and stops for his team.  His athleticism, combined with his shooting, scoring, and defensive potential could make him an intriguing upside pick for NBA teams on draft day.

On the other hand, he can tend to be too streaky with his jump shot and he can tend to settle for questionable shots that may hurt his shooting percentages.  He also will need to show NBA teams that he can reliably run the point.  Currently, he projects to go in the late first to the second round range for the 2023 draft.
