Zylan Cheatham is a very athletic, combination forward that has been said to have played well at the Adidas Nations tournament this past summer.
He may project into a defensive specialist role for the next level, and has played well this year, but he will need to improve his jump shot. Right now, he may be a second round candidate for the upcoming draft.
