NBA Comparison: Jarrett Jack

Strengths: At 6’2, he has good height for a point guard ... A strong athlete, who uses his body and physique to penetrate and gain the advantage, creating alot of opportunities at the free throw line by being aggressive ... A season average of 86.3% FT shooting allows him to capitalize on his aggressiveness ... He shows solid ability to finish with his strength as well as finding teammates on drive and dish ... Creates shots well by using his body to create space ... Good ball-handling skills ... Very good composure and readiness considering his age, having just finished his freshman season ... He instantly became a standout player, who leads by example ... When the game is on the line, he usually steps up to the challenge and wants the ball ... Great 3 point shooter (41.2%) and overall a good shooter ... Even better at catch and shoot when receiving the ball and spotting up, playing as a shooting guard ... Good rebounder as he is not afraid of contact or fighting for that missed shot under the basket ... He finished with a season average of 3.9 rebounds per game and a few of games with double digit rebounds ...

Weaknesses: Spent his freshman season with ups and downs and will need to become more consistent ... Started the season strong but hit the freshman wall towards the end, and while his scoring might have stayed the same, his shooting percentages dropped as Maryland also struggled during that stretch ... Needs to continue to build up his body and conditioning to excel at the next level ... Although he averaged 33.5 mpg, later in the season you could see his athleticism fell off some, likely due to fatigue ... Needs to improve on the defense end, not necessarily his skills but his focus and effort level ... Needs to maintain his motivation level regardless of the level of the competition ... Lacked vocal leadership for a point guard and that will be something he'll need to improve upon ... Needs to improve his passing skills, being a facilitator and develop less of a scoring focus ... Only blocked 2 shots all season long, so could be more aggressive in that aspect of the game ...

Notes: Name is "Romelo" though goes by "Melo" ... Announced he will return for his sophomore year at Maryland ... An extra year of college should enhance his chances to be a first rounder. ... Lost in his first appearance in the NCAA Tournament against West Virginia, a college that he was invited to attend. Born and raised in Maryland, the Terps were a natural choice for him ...
