NBA Comparison: JJ Hickson/Bo Outlaw

Strengths: Long, athletic prospect with great leaping abilities ... Huge wingspan (7'4") helps make him a very disruptive defensive presence. Gets his share of blocks and steals ... Above-the-rim athlete who uses his tremendous vertical and explosiveness to get numerous "garbage" buckets off of put-backs and easy dunks ... High-motor big man who is constantly battling for rebounds and bringing energy and relentlessness to the court ... Surprisingly decent mid-range jumper ... Runs the floor very well ... Very efficient player. Shot 58% last season ... Face-up 4 who has a quick first step and can take his man off the dribble ... At age 19, still has plenty of time to develop and fine-tune his skill set...As a valuable bench player on last year's national champion Louisville team, Harrell proved he can play within his role and not try to do too much...

Weaknesses: Still very raw as a basketball player ... Doesn't have much of a post game at all ... Appears somewhat mechanical with the ball in his hands offensively ... Not a great defensive rebounder (2.2 DRPG). Needs to work on his technique instead of relying solely on athleticism ... Has a great wingspan, but is still slightly undersized for a power forward at 6'8 ... Footwork is rough ... Poor free throw shooter (51%) ... Can be overly aggressive at times, particularly on defense ... Really needs to diversify his offensive game beyond around-the-rim plays if he wants to be more than a one-dimensional role player at the next level ...

Overall: Harrell has excellent potential with his wingspan and his explosiveness, in addition to his developing face-up game and fluidity. If he can improve his basketball skills and become a better rebounder and post-up scorer, he could develop into a productive power forward in the NBA.
