Yago Dos Santos is a smart, poised point guard that can shoot and pass the basketball.  He is a crafty player that can knock down pull-up jumpers, and he also will throw solid interior passes to set up scores for his teammates.

His performance at the 2018 Nike Hoops Summit at best may have been a mixed bag, as he did not make a field goal, but he excelled in the non-shooting or scoring related categories, as his team also won the match.​

Dos Santos is a tough, gritty point guard that could end up filling a backup role in the NBA in a favorable scenario, and with his skill set, he could end up being a second round, draft and stash candidate for teams looking for players at his position.
