NBA Comparison: Ish Smith/Jamaal Tinsley

Strengths: 6’2.25 guard … Explosive athleticism with good body control ... Quick first step and in the open floor ... Finishes well at the rim … Shoots well from midrange and three ... Shoots well both off the dribble and catch ... Gets good elevation on jump shot and creates space using his step ... Can stop on a dime … Scores in bunches and heats up quickly ... Plays well on and off the ball ... Can serve as a playmaker for others … Draws fouls and a reliable free throw shooter … Good ballhandler. Changes direction and speed well with the ball. Penetrates and gets to the rim. Fearless driver and challenges bigger defenders in the paint. Doesn’t favor a side when driving … Contributes in multiple statistical categories … Rebounds well for a guard … Brings a consistent effort and competitiveness on both ends. Active hands and quick feet. Good on ball defender and plays passing lanes well …

Weaknesses: Doesn’t have great size or length with a 6’3.5 wingspan and 8’1 standing reach … At this point he's more of an undersized scoring guard than true point ... Played primarily as the two-guard for Oak Hill as a junior and senior alongside Matt Coleman in the backcourt ... While he records assists, he still has a ways to go in elevating his teammates … Sometimes attacks the middle, leaves his feet, and gets caught in the air when making a pass … Has room to add strength … A bit older for his class …

Outlook: Iowa State freshman … Participated in the Nike Hoop Summit (11 points and seven assists) and Derby Classic (13 points) …
