NBA Comparison: Jae Crowder

Strengths: Good shooter and has developed solid range ... Decent scorer from the post, and has the ability to post-up and hit contested jump shots ... Above average scorer off the dribble. Can either beat you off the bounce or pull-up from mid-range and nail the jumper ... Decent playmaker, rarely made bad decisions ... Average defensive player … Decent quickness and above average strength that makes him tough to beat off the dribble … Good rebounder especially for his position, averaged 6.1 rebounds per game last year. Get’s great position with strength and athletic ability … Great strength which allows him to create space from defender and finish tough through contact around the rim … Great athlete, probably had the poster of the year in college basketball. Schofield has solid quickness and an impressive leap … Very good motor, always plays his hardest and genuinely cares about winning … Good form on his jump shot which allowed him to improve from beyond the arc each year during his tenure at Tennessee … Not afraid to take jumpers, has great range and can knock down the shot in a variety of ways. Schofield scored numerous times from the perimeter by catch-and-shoot, off the dribble, or even fighting through screens to get open … Dedicated to get better. Freshman year Schofield checked in with 11% body fat and his senior year brought it down to 5%. Allowed him to be more athletic and quicker which has catapulted his draft stock … Can cover multiple positions due to lateral quickness and strength to guard bigger players ... Solid leader and has great intangibles ...

Weaknesses: Does not draw enough fouls when driving to the lane, only averaged 2.3 FTA per game ... Schofield is a big body who should consistently be able to put pressure on the defense when cutting and driving to the lane ... Like I said, Schofield is not afraid to take the jumper but that means he sometimes settles which results in his low FTA mark ... Schofield averaged 4.8 3PA per game last year, granted he hit them at a 42% clip, but just because he can space the floor doesn’t mean he shouldn’t put pressure on the defense on the interior … While Schofield is a quality playmaker, he has room to improve in regard to passing ability ... He or Grant Williams were constantly double teamed which should’ve allowed for more assist’s opportunities (2.0 APG) ... Schofield does struggle to guard quicker players; he has the lateral quickness and strength to do it but sometimes is caught flat-footed ... For someone who is an average defensive player and athletic specimen, Schofield should be able to rack up more steals and blocks ... Schofield is 22 years old which can be a red flag in comparison to the younger talent that has plenty of room to grow ...

Outlook:
Schofield climbed NBA Draft boards after a stellar senior season ... The kid can shoot it, has range is explosive getting to the rim, and has the physique to keep pace in the NBA right now ... He also seems to be a great kid on top of being a very talented basketball player ... Schofield seems to be hovering around the beginning of the second round (Where Crowder was drafted), but with great workouts he could catapult into a fringe first-rounder ...

Notes: 2019 All-SEC First Team. Top 5 finalist for the Julius Erving Small Forward of the Year Award. Led Tennessee in 3-pointers this season ... Showed up against top teams this year: Averaged 18.1 ppg and 6.0 rpg against ranked opponents ... Was born in London in the same hospital that Prince William and Harry were born ... His brother O’Brien Schofield played in the NFL and was apart of the Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl XLVII Super Bowl team ...
