A potential late first found pick, Texas Tech guard Jahmi'us Ramsey declared for NBA draft over the weekend. While he did not select an agent, he is not expected to reverse his decision and return to college.

Ramsey, a 6’4″ guard, was the Big 12 Freshman of the Year averaging 15 points, 4 rebounds, and 2.2 assists a game for Texas Tech, and he shot 43 percent from three.

He is a score-first guard who plays an attacking, aggressive style and has the skill to either get the rim and score or knock down the three. He’s also an aggressive defender, and he’s a solid enough athlete to hang at the NBA level. Teams see potential, but he’s more of a combo-guard, not a ball-distributing point guard, and he’s not tall enough to defend the two at the NBA level. Ramsey shot 64.1 percent from the free throw line, which is a little concerning about his shot. To stick in the NBA, Ramsey has to prove he can do more than just score.

Ramsey is projected as a late first/early second-round pick according to sources.
