Jacob Gilyard/ Point Guard / Richmond
In this episode of the Probe we take a look at Richmond point guard Jacob Gilyard. A tough floor general that is elite at managing a game, elite defensively and has mastered the intangibles that are pivotal to helping teams win. Let’s take a look at the underrated floor general.
Ability to create space
Ability to get in the lane
Pick & Roll ability
Shooting over length
Future Pro Potential:
Part time rotation to part-time starter
Pro Player Comparison:
Gilyard is a big reason why people shouldn’t underestimate Richmond and why they’re in the top 25 currently. He’s a difference maker and one most teams find it difficult to account for. He can dominate a game and not score a point which is rare in this day and age. If he proves he can hit shots consistently over taller, longer guards, with everything else he brings to the table as a PG, I wouldn’t be shocked to see him secure a roster spot at the next level sooner then later.
