NBA Comparison: Quincy Pondexter

Strengths: Explosive, physical freak type of athlete with great length and an improving game ... Makes highlight reel plays on a regular basis, an absolutely breath taking athlete ... Outside shooting has shown solid development and he shows a promising shooting form ... Very aggressive attacking the rim and is great in the open floor ... A nightmare on back door cuts for ally oops. Also excels at crashing the glass for follow up rebound jams ... Has tremendous length (wingspan in the 7-foot neighborhood) and a great basketball body ... Already has good strength with muscle mass (which is sure to improve) giving him the ability to finish at the rim after contact ... Appears to have grown an inch or two in the past year (from 6'5 to 6'7) ... His offensive game should be able to develop considerably while in at the collegiate level ... Shows a lot of potential defensively with excellent anticipation and a great first step to jump passing lanes and get out for breakaway dunks ... Appears to have a high motor and willingness to be coached and improve ... His upside is considerable ...

Weaknesses: His offensive canvas is spacious but still in the beginning stages. Putting the work in and not rushing a jump to the NBA will pay off considerably in the long run ... Still must become a better ball handler ... His overall basketball understanding is solid but still developing ... His shot shows good mechanics but he'll need to put in the work to really refine his consistency shooting from the perimeter as well as mid-range and both pulling and spotting up ... Can be too aggressive attacking the glass and because he's so athletic it can create some scary falls (like against Utah Valley) ... He'll need to find a happy medium between using his world class athletic ability attacking the rim and putting himself in harm’s way ... Needs to become better at creating offense for himself off the dribble ...
Notes: Showed a great deal of talent and potential in high school and appears to be putting it all together opting to stay at home to play for the Minnesota Golden Gophers ...
