Draft Notes

Hyland is a lanky, rangy combo guard with a score first mentality. The 6-3 guard from Wilmington, DE is having a breakout sophomore year, shooting the ball at a high clip and shooting up draft boards.

Hyland can really handle the ball and has a nice first step. Combining this with his off the dribble 3pt shooting ability makes him a dangerous offensive weapon (think Lou Williams type of role). He shot over 43% on 3’s as a freshman and is off to a good start this year.

He’s quick into the lane and has blow-by speed, especially going to his left. And he’s a creative finisher around the hoop, hanging in the air and using up and under moves to score the ball. His lanky drives to the hoop remind a little of Dejounte Murray.

At this point he’s more of a scoring point guard and not a pure facilitator.

He’s got great defensive tools and a chance to be a lock down defender, especially as he puts on more weight.

Hyland isn’t on a lot of draft boards at this point but you can expect that to change soon. He looks like a sure-fire draft pick in the next 1 or 2 years.
