Strengths:
-Good size for a shooting guard at around 6-6, with a strong frame
-Smooth athlete
-Pushes ball aggressively in transition. Will find the open man
-Aggressively tries to create in half-court. Capable pick and roll and one on one player
-Shows some creativity with the ball. Hesitation moves, head-fakes, spins, etc
-Can finish with either hand
-Competitive and aggressive. Tremendous rebounder for a guard. 11.4 rebounds per-40 in 22 adidas event games this summer. Goes out of area frequently
-Shooting mechanics aren't broken. Threw in some pull-ups and spot-ups. Has some potential as a shooter if he continues to work on it. Shot 69% from the free throw line on a fairly high volume

Weaknesses:
-Good, not great athlete. Body is already very developed and may be close to reaching full potental
-Skill-level, decision making ability are a work in progress
-Not an efficient offensive player at this stage. Doesn't take many 3s. Shot just 48% for 2 at adidas events this summer.
-Needs to improve his advanced ball-handling skills. Tries to create frequently, but not overly efficient off the dribble at the moment.
-Forced to settle for pullups when he's unable to simply beat his man off the dribble and get all the way to the rim
-Limited perimeter shooter. Has a very deliberate stroke. Shot just 10 of 37 (27%) from beyond the arc in 22 adidas event games this summer
-Effort level of defense comes and goes. Tends to reach excessively. Can't always stay in front. May be pushed more to the wing or forward spots in college if he can't consistently defend guards
-Not a great decision maker with the ball. 29/41 assist to turnover ratio this summer. Spends a lot of time with the ball in his hands, but questionable if he can do so at higher levels unless he significantly improves

Outlook: Wing with decent size. Played a good amount of PG at Nations as well as with AAU team (Colorado Hawks). Getting recruited at the MM+/HM- level, which seems to be an accurate reflection of where he's at at the moment. Will have to decide if he prefers to go to a slightly lower level, where he can play and continue to develop his guard skills, or whether to commit to a higher level, where he's likely to be pushed to the forward spots.
