Ty Jerome (Virginia) is a 6’5 guard who is a potential 2019 draftee. Even though he is not as athletic as other 2019 prospects, and doesn’t have many highlight plays, he still stands out by being one of the most important, and smartest, players on one of the top college basketball teams.
This video goes over Jerome’s strengths and weaknesses (or things he should improve on). After watching the video, you will see why he’s an important player that teams will love because of all the little things he does. He’s a pest on defense and has a very high IQ. He also moves really well without the ball and is one of the best spot-up shooters in all of college. In addition to his off the ball production, he’s still able to handle the ball and create for teammates out of the pick and roll.
In June, Ty Jerome should hear his name called by an NBA team. While there are certain teams that could maximize his skill-set, his IQ and diverse skills will make it easy for him to fit on any team.
