NBA Comparison: Terry Porter

Strengths: A true PG with excellent size at 6'4/6'5 ... Confident ball handler capable of maintaining ball control as second nature and allowing plays to develop from the top of the key. Thrives with the ball in his hands ... Has good composure. A good decision maker and passer. Had a 2.5/1 turnover ratio as a freshman ... Solid first step off the dribble and finishes well at the rim ... Hits his foul shots at an effective (82%) clip ... Has good strength to withstand contact and finish ... Very good shooter. Despite struggling from the floor in his freshman season, shows very good form on his shot ... Gets his feet set quickly. Has a clean, quick, concise release ... Solid versatility to play on or off the ball. Understands how to move off the ball to get open ... Good isolation ability with the ability to set his man up with crossovers and also pull up off the dribble ... Has the ability to use both hands, to handle the ball and to finish ... Good finisher despite lacking great explosiveness with body control and the knowledge of his to use his vody to screen shot blockers when he attacks the basket ... Clutch performer, knocked down a huge step back 3 pointer in the closing minute of the Irish' NCAA game against Xavier ... Long arms help him to jump passing lanes as well as play more athletic and finish at the rim with dunks ... His long arms also help him to get shots off without much daylight from a defender ... Sturdy frame. Good body strength / balance. Able to change directions well ... Has good blood lines. Father and Uncle were NBA twins Harvey and Horace Grant ... A player who appears to be on the brink of a breakout season ... Solid defensively. Doesn't gamble much. Plays sound, fundamental defense ... Generally guards the opponents 2-guard so how he can handle speedy ...

Weaknesses: Solid athlete but not sensational. Makes good adjustments in the air but not the highest flying or highlight reel dunker ... Needs to improve upon his shot selection. Forced shots far too often as a freshman. Would launch shots with a defender in his face ... Shot 38% from the floor and 35% from 3, numbers that could be greatly improved with more judicious shot selection ... Could be a better rebounder for a 6'5 guard at 2.9 per game in 36 mpg ... With a decided size and strength advantage over competitors, he should be more aggressive at penetrating and getting to the free throw line. 4 FT attempts per game as a FR ... Should learn to incorporate a floater into his game ... At times he penetrates too far and get blocked by bigmen at the rim ... Could stand to place more energy and emphasis his defensive game ... Lacks tremendous lateral quickness to be a lockdown defender ...

Notes: Son of former NBA player Harvey Grant and Nephew of Chicago Bulls standout Horace Grant ... Brothers are also high level athletes: Jerami Grant (a high level recruit) will be a freshman at Syracuse, and Jaelin a prep player from the class of 2015 ... Redshirted his freshmen season due to a stress fracture in his lower left leg ...
