NBA Comparison: Jared Dudley

Strengths: One of the most exciting players in college basketball ... Aggressive, imaginative player with a scorer's mentality. Has a bit of throwback demeanor with his dreadlocks and headband (rare for a 2-guard) ... Highly determined. Will battle you tooth and nail. "Crazy" in a good way ... Highly competitive, has stepped up in some big games this year ... Solid athlete by NBA standards with adequate foot speed, body control and explosiveness. Seems to maximize his abilities ... High volume shooter, but rarely forces bad shots ... Fearless style of game and is relentless attacking the basket. Capable of finishing at the rim in spectacular fashion, and will do so in traffic without hesitation ... Shows excellent ball handling in the open court and loves to push the ball up the floor ... Good court sense and feel for the game. Understands how to use his body well to shield shots from defenders ... Has a crisp, fluid shooting motion and connects on a high number of shots (40% from 3 and 84% FT) ... Very effective running the pick and roll and creating shots for himself off the dribble ... Equally adept at the catch and shoot ... Shows a strong understanding of how to free himself for shots using screens, as well as fakes ... Loves to pull up from the top of the key and will do so from 5-8 feet beyond the college line, showing NBA range on his jumpshot ... Never seems to take a play off. His motor is nonstop on both ends of the floor. Strong defender. For as "wild" and aggressive as his nature is on the floor, he shows maturity in his mannerisms, supporting teammates and being a team focused player ...

Weaknesses: His fearless, free wheeling nature leads to playing out of control at times ... Can be prone to turnovers and playing too Helter Skelter. What makes him so successful at times can also be his downfall. ... Poor assist to turnover ratio. Some of which can be attributed to being forced to make plays due to lack of quality teammates ... Needs to learn better ball protection and not force passes. Seems to play the game at a fever pitch, and learning to harness the fearlessness and cut down on the turnovers will make him an efficient player in the long run ... Has carte blanch to play a somewhat schizophrenic brand of basketball. It remains to be seen if he can have the same level of success with more limitations on his shot volume and style of play ... Will turn 22 this year (October), so he's already the age of a senior, limiting his upside to a degree ... Body frame is on the slight side for being a 21 year old player. Will need to get stronger ...

Notes: Legitimate Player of the Year Candidate in the Big 10 ... Sat out the 2012-13 season after transferring from Texas Tech (where he played his FR season) ... Measured 6'6 (in shoes) 214 lbs, with a 6'10 wingspan at the 2014 Kevin Durant Skills Academy
