SUMMARY

Kansas sophomore Devon Dotson is coming off a good freshman campaign where he averaged 12.3 ppg 3.5 apg and 3.7 rpg.

Dotson is a blessed with a lightning quick first step and blazing speed in the open court. He's also a good finisher around the rim, a respectable shooter from 3 (36% as a freshman) and uses his speed to put pressure on defenses.

i2020 is a deep point guard class and Dotson is considered a late 1st round pick at this point in the season. I'd love to see him improve his pace and add a mid range game and floater to his arsenal. I'd also like to see him improve as a passer. He's a solid drive and kick passer, but will need to improve his passing instincts and court vision.
