NBA Comparison: Eric Devendorf

Strengths: Scrappy, overachieving shooting guard who has a great feel for the game ... Solid decision maker ... Good shooter with range out to the NBA 3-point line (solid volume 2 per game, and percentage 40%) … Can put the ball on the floor and sees the court well … Has nearly doubled his assist total as a sophomore while playing only slightly more minutes … At the same time, has managed to keep his turnovers relatively the same … Played a key role as a redshirt freshman for Wichita State’s Final Four team showing excellent poise … Work ethic seems to be an obvious factor, has developed greatly since arriving as a walk-on in 2011 (though, one who was guaranteed a scholarship for the next season) … Has improved his on-ball defense, … Greatly improved his all-around offensive game since his freshman season, showing much more ability to create opportunities going to the basket ...

Weaknesses: Jack of all trades overachiever type, but doesn't have any stand out skill that makes him intriguing as an NBA prospect at this point ... Undersized for a SG and lacks speed and athleticism for either NBA guard position ... A solid shooter, but not elite ... Lateral quickness definitely an issue for defending guards at the NBA level … Size not optimal for SG, and has not displayed the ability to play point guard full time ... Suffered a stress fracture in his left foot that caused him to miss all of Wichita State’s conference regular season as a FR … Has also played hurt for a great deal of this season, injury prone? … Goes through bouts of streakiness and inconsistency ... Yet to maintain a high level overall FG % … Below the rim player, not many starting SG’s out there on high level teams, hard to see him as a primary ball handler ... Born in 1993 so the age of a junior after redshirting his first year at WSU ...

Notes: From a small town in western Kansas, and was a three-sport athlete in high school … Led Scotts City High School to three 3A State Championships … At time of report, has 32-3 record in games he has played in during career at Wichita State … Gives a lot of effort and has really good mind for the game … Measured 6'4 (in shoes) 222 lbs, with a 6'8.5 wingspan at the 2014 Kevin Durant Skills Academy
