I was just reading an article on The Bleacher Report about this kid and he might end up going to college midseason. Some sites have him being ranked as the 3rd overall player, I don't know too much about him except he is a 6'6 guard that can play both positions. I was wondering does anyone know about his game or thoughts on him going to college vs waiting out on the draft.
Well I haven't seen much of him yet but word is he is leaning toward Indiana for college. He has elite and I mean elite quickness. That's really what makes him a high level prospect because his jumper isn't wet yet and his passing/court vision is good but not great. Imagine Eric bledsoe 5 inches taller but less aggressive.
Soo he is a 6'6 pg with elite quickness, solid vision and a work in progress jumper. I need to see this guy play, hopefully he goes to college to showcase his skills.
Just read some more Bleacher Report. They have all the correct and up to date info
He recently just dropped 33 points against Spain in the U/19 competition
You can watch him today. He plays against Lithuania I think at 12 pm eastern time. There are livestreams online on the usual sites and ESPN3 shows it too I think.
Here are his highlights against Spain.
He is a combo guard who runs the point most of the time for his team. But that's mainly because he is by far their best player and the only one who can really create his own shot.
I'm sure he'll strictly be a two-guard at the next level. One who needs the ball in his hands but who is good of the ball as well. He cuts, comes off screens all the time when the ball is not in his hands.
His 3 point shot improved a lot during the last year. But he needs to work on his midrange and free throw shot. He missed 2 crucial free throws in the last game against Serbia that cost them the game. That'll probably motivate him only further to work on his shot.
I'd say a more aggresive Shved...
Just as a reminder, game has just started.
