All-American (high school) (04), SEC All-Freshman Team (05), USA Men’s
Under 21 Team (05).
lightning quick, explosive leaping point guard with off the charts
rebounding ability. Unfortunately he doesn’t possess much of a shooting
and disher. His quickness allows him to blow by defenders, and he also
has a nice passing touch. An unbelievably strong rebounder for a point
guard (or for any position for that matter) – grabbed 19 boards in a
game this year. He is also is a terrific defender – using his great
quickness, long reach, and jumping ability to snare passes and loose balls.
Poor outside shooter. He hasn’t shown the ability to knock down the
3-point shot consistently. His big hands make his shot ugly to look at. He also
is a horrible free throw shooter, although to his credit he has improved
this year. Hasn’t been a big time scorer on the college level.
Projected 2006 Draft
Range: Late lottery
quickness, leaping ability and defensive prowess make him a great NBA
prospect. If he works hard on his shooting touch he could become an
all-star point guard down the road. For the meantime defenders will
continue to lag off him until he proves he can knock down jumpers.
