NBA Comparison: Brandon Jennings/Ish Smith

Strengths: Possesses a lightning quick first step and the ability to blow by most defenders. One of the quickest if not the quickest PG on the college level ... Improving jump shot from both inside and outside the arc ... Had a 40 made free throws in a row streak during junior year, and is hitting 87% on high volume, a tribute to his vastly improved shooting and dedication ... Has become very adept at drawing fouls, hitting over 7.2 per game on 8.3 attempts per game ... Quick hands on defense ... Evolving into one of the better PGs in the country after struggling with efficiency early on in his career ... Decent size and wingspan for the PG position ... Great touch around the basket and an above average finisher at this point in his career ... Ambidextrous. Great ball handler and can do so with both hands ... Becoming a much better floor general and leader as opposed to just a scorer ... Has good PG size, being measured at 6'2 with a 6'4 wingspan while in high school ...

Weaknesses: Body strength remains a concern as he lacks great ability to absorb contact ... Gets bumped off of his path/spots and too easily ... As a junior, he is still very light so he will probably always be on the thin side ... Shot selection can still be an issue at times, though vastly improved ... Has a tendency to try to do too much on offense instead of deferring to his teammates when necessary ... Mechanics on jump shot aren't great and his jumper is a little flat ... Entry passes to the post aren't great and doesn't look there enough, whether naturally or by design ... Still doesn't necessarily make his teammates better all the time as he looks to score before all else ... Came in college with some off court concerns but has matured by all accounts ...

Overall: Improved tremendously from his freshman to junior years ... His speed and handles make him an NBA prospect at the PG position ... An ever improving jump shot that will go a long way towards his success at the next level ... Very even keeled player that rarely gets too emotional on the court ... Great physical tools and decent athleticism, although not a great one on one defender ... Projected as an early to mid second round prospect and climbing ...

Notes:
Measured 6'2 (in shoes) 168 lbs, with a 6'4 wingspan at the 2012 LeBron James Skills Academy ... Nickname is "Cat" ... Came into college as a borderline top 25 recruit ... Had his (#12) number retired by Hampton High School, in Virginia, along with Ronald Curry (#22) ...
