Strengths: Has developed well over the past year into one of the strongest point guards in the country in a PG heavy class ... Possesses the feel for the game and point guard instincts of a coaches son (Father, Ray Sr. is the head coach for University of Detroit Mercy) ...

Can learn to become a more vocal leader ... Nees to continue to extend his range, consistency on shot ...
