2024 Draft Profile - Jaylon Tyson

Kevin O'Connor - The Ringer - June 17th: "As the point guard for his college team, he plays at his own pace. He doesnít have the quickest first step or burst to turn the corner, but he controls the tempo. He puts good zip on passes while showing dexterity off the dribble."

NBA Draft Room - June 16th: "A strong 6-7 wing who has taken his game to a new level and put himself in the mid first round conversation. A productive scorer and a high level athlete."

Sam Vecenie - The Athletic - June 5th: "Heís not an explosive athlete, but heís powerful and isnít all that bothered by contact, allowing him to get the most out of his length and athleticism. He averaged 19.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game while shooting 47 percent from the field and 35.8 percent from 3."

Colin Ward-Henninger - CBS Sports - June 4th: "He might have been overextended a bit at Cal and got into the habit of overdribbling, but his role will be simplified at the NBA level, allowing him to shine as a big guard who puts pressure on the rim and can knock down the open 3-pointers."

Jonathan Wasserman - Bleacher Report - May 30th: "A 30.1 percent usage on a 13-19 California team does cast a cloud over his statistical production. But the eye test clearly shows a scorer with NBA traits and skills, including 6'6" size, ball-handling for creation/playmaking and tough shotmaking."

Kevin O'Connor - The Ringer - March 18th: "Breakout transfer shining with high usage, though he has the complementary skills to be a role player."

Jeff Zillgitt and Scooby Axson - USA Today - March 12th: "Can score, sees the court well and moves well without the ball. A solid rebounder who can also initiate offense as a playmaker either passing or creating shots for himself and knows how to utilize his size in pick-and-rolls as a ball-handler."
