NBA Comparison: Fred Hoiberg

Strengths: Huerter is a smart, skilled playmaker that offers a nice versatile package that NBA teams look for in today’s game ... Huerter’s biggest selling point is his ability to shoot the ball from the perimeter and space the floor ... In his sophomore season at Maryland he shot 42 percent from past the arc, up from a solid 37 percent in his freshman season ... He has become a terrific catch and shoot player from both a stationary position and coming off of screens ... He has great shot preparation, gets excellent rotation on the ball and has deep range ... This past season he also showed capability to put the ball on the floor and knock down shots in the mid-range area ... This was a big reason his field goal percentage increased a full eight points from last season ... Huerter has good size for the shooting guard position at 6’6 and a nice frame that should fill out with time ... He is also a fairly good athlete who moves fluidly and has good leaping ability ... Huerter is an intelligent player and plays the game unselfishly ... He does a great job moving the ball and finding the open man to keep the offense flowing ... He has become a pretty good facilitator, averaging 3.4 assists per game this past season ... Huerter also does a nice job on the glass for a guard, as he averaged five rebounds per game in two seasons at Maryland ... He is not the most physically gifted player in the world, but he is a decent defensive player and does a good job using his size to his advantage ... He plays very hard on this end of the court and does a nice job of sliding his feet to stay in front of his man ...

Weaknesses: Huerter does not have great length, measuring at just a 6’7 wingspan, which will limit his upside defensively ... He has a solid frame but still needs to add strength before he can handle NBA level physicality ... He is not a great finisher at the rim (though he'll surprise at times) and with his current lack of length and strength, he may have a difficult time getting to the basket at the next level ... He can be somewhat one-dimensional offensively, as he is not a great ball-handler and does not get to the free-throw line very often ... Huerter struggles when he has to put the ball on the deck for more than a couple of dribbles and can be a bit turnover prone when forced to do this ... He is mostly a catch and shoot guy at this stage and does not have a very explosive first step to get by his man ... Because of that combined with his lack of length, he will likely struggle against longer and more athletic players on both ends of the court in the NBA ...

Notes: He was one of the biggest surprises at the NBA Combine in May and now looks like he could be a possible first-round selection .... Measured 6'6.25 barefoot, 6'7.25 in shoes, 194 lbs, 6'7.5 wingspan, 8'5.5 standing reach, 8.6% body fat, and a 8.25 inch hand length at the 2018 NBA Draft Combine ... Pronounced "Hurter" ... Son of Tom and Erin Huerter...Has one brother, Thomas, Jr., and two sisters - Meghan and Jillian… 2017-18 All-Big Ten Honorable Mention…2017-18 Big Ten All-Academic ... Measured 6’6’’ in shoes, with a 6’6’’ wingspan and 169 lbs at the 2015 Nike Basketball Academy ... Measured 6'5 without shoes, 6'6 with shoes, 197 lbs, with a 6'7.75 wingspan and 8'5.5 standing reach at the June 2017 USA U19 tryouts
