Jalen Williams Stats

2021-22 Santa Clara Broncos (Junior)
- 18.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.5 blocks, 1.1 turnovers, 1.3 3-pointers, 34.8 minutes per game. 51.3% field goal, 39.6% 3-point shooting.

Williams has all the makings of a late first round steal. He's a gifted scorer that can create his own shot even when covered by defenders, and he improved as a 3-point shooter in each of his three years with the Broncos. The Santa Clara product is also one of the most exciting playmakers in the draft, boasting impressive vision and crafty handling all while being nearly 6-foot-6. His monstrous wingspan gives him the potential to be a defensive nightmare on the perimeter as well.
