Jerrelle Benimon

Anyone know anything about this guy? I was looking into guys I hadn't heard of and he stood out to me. He's a junior at Towson but he transferred from Georgetown. He's listed at 6'8 245 so size isn't much of an issue and he's producing all across the board: 17.2 ppg 11.1 rpg 2.6 apg 2 bpg 53.9% FG and 41.7% from deep. So can anyone tell me more about him and if he's a prospect?

Saw him play in person

Saw him play in person earlier this year against Temple and he was dominant. He's a bruiser inside and has good moves in the post but he's also got a good mid-range jumpshot. He even has a good handle as I saw him drive from the 3 line and do spin moves for layups. He pretty much has everything you want on offense.

His weakness is defense and attitude. He doesn't try at all on defense and is just lazy.

He also is Towson's only player and plays all 40 minutes. He pretty much takes all their shots and dominates the ball on offense so his numbers are probably inflated a little bit.

I think the last sentence is

I think the last sentence is a bit of an exaggeration because he's really efficient, only takes 11.4 shots a game in 36 minutes and overall takes about 20.6% of the teams shots (Trey Burke as a comparison takes 24.1% of Michigan's shots).
