NBA Comparison: Eric Bledsoe

Strengths: 6’2 scoring point guard … Good length relative to his height with a 6’6.5 wingspan … Extremely quick. Very talented guard with a scorer’s mentality, showing an innate ability ... Can get into a zone and take over the game offensively ... Reads his defender well and creates for himself with little effort ... Has a developing pull up he can get off in ISO situations ... Scores in bunches and from anywhere on the floor ... Can get to the rim and shoot from outside ... Good touch on floater ... Can score in transition or in the half court, regardless of the flow of the game and doesn’t need plays aren’t ran for him ... Has a very good step back jump shot from three, even when tightly contested … Led the Nike EYBL in scoring with 31.7 points per game, which was nine more points per game than Michael Porter, who was second … Tough. Not afraid of contact and plays comfortably with it ... Forces the action ... Reliable free throw shooter and gets to the line at will ... Made 181 free throws (shot 85.4%) over the Nike EYBL which was over twice as many as Trae Young and Chris Lykes who finished with the second most with 90 … Very athletic and quick and possesses a good first step ... Explosive. Good body control and acrobatic finishes … Can lead the break and thrives in transition. Handles the ball well ... Can get where he wants and scores well off the dribble ... Slices through tight spaces in the defense ... Isn’t afraid to attack the paint no matter the size of the help defense … Great ambidexterity. Drives and finishes equally well going both left and right … Good and intense on ball defender ... Very active and moves quick laterally … Very quick to the ball. Has a knack for offensive rebounds. Almost rebounds as well on the offensive end as he does on defense … Competitive and fearless ... Never quits on a play. Plays with a lot of passion … Has proven to be a guy that loves the big stage and performes well the bigger the game ...

Weaknesses: Still becoming a point guard, Sexton has shown improvement passing the ball and developing into a point guard during his senior year but is still transitioning as he’s naturally a scorer ... Will need further development and experience bringing out the best in his teammates ... Averaged 20.5 shots per game over the Nike EYBL ... Plays like a one man fast break at times, even in the half court ... Needs to improve as a decision maker ... Although it worked for him at the high school level, he doesn’t have ideal shot selection ... Forces offense and can be reckless at times ... Doesn’t always keep it simple and attempts the unnecessary flashy play at times ... Only averaged 1.1 assist to 2.6 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL … Can improve moving without the ball … Still has room to improve as a shooter ... More of a streaky shooter than consistent outside threat … Plays with passion but wears his emotions on his sleeve too much at times …

Outlook: Incoming Alabama freshman. Earned MVP of the FIBA U17 World Championship … Sexton had a breakout summer and showed he can excel with the nation’s best. He has established himself as the top scorer in high school basketball. Played in the McDonald’s All American Game (eight points, seven assists, and three steals), Jordan Brand Classic, and Nike Hoop Summit … Measured an 8’0 standing reach at the Nike Hoop Summit.
