SUMMARY

Jay Scrubb was a relatively unknown player at this time last year, but burst on NBA scouts radars after a standout freshman season at a John A. Logan college where he averaged 20.2 points, 8.9 rebounds 1.6 blocks and shot a blistering 46% from 3.

Although he has committed to Louisville, it's unlikely Scrubb will step a foot on campus next season, as he is expected to enter the 2020 NBA Draft. 

Scrubb is a phenomenal athlete that can score in a variety of ways. Blessed with great size and natural strength, Scrubb can beat wings off the dribble and score at the rim through contact or exploit smaller and weaker guards on the block.

While he's no longer and unknown commodity, there will be plenty of questions about the level of competition he'll face in JUCO
