Scouting Report: Jalen Harris broke out last year to become one of the nation's and draft's top shot-creators and scorers. He's the type of player you can feed the ball to and ask to generate offense out of nothing. He will have a chance to carve out a career through his ability to get his own shot from all over the floor off ball screens and isolation.
