Summary:

Jarrell Brantley was consistently played well in the 2019 Portsmouth Invitational, as he would bull his way to the hoop to get strong scores off of aggressive drives as well as in the post, and he also shot the ball very well in the final day of the event.  He is a strong, physical specimen that has the size to play multiple positions.  Brantley’s not the fastest or quickest player, but his ability to score and rebound could allow him to be a potential second round pick in 2019.
