NBA Comparison: Gary Neal/George Hill

Strengths: Shooting guard with a mature, composed, smooth all around game … Highly versatile with some ability to play either guard position … Makes excellent decisions, focused, always thinking, never in a rush … Stronger in the half court than full court due to his discipline and decision making … Solid vision … Very unselfish. Team player who could probably score a lot more if he was in another system or worried more about personal accolades than wins … Has one of the prettiest shooting strokes on the college level: Squares to the basket, gets a wide base, good elevation, shoots with a high release point, gets the ball off quickly and with excellent follow through … (44% from 3) Has a smooth pull up jumper off the dribble … Shoots well in catch and shoot … Will make you pay if he’s left open … Likes to take big shots … Handles like a point guard and is equally adept using either hand, in fact appears better with his left … His ball handling, vision and experience playing the point could allow him to play the position within the rotation at the next level … Comfortable bringing the ball up and handling the ball against speedy guards … Can take the ball coast to coast … Good one on one skills, has a crossover, uses hesitation moves, ball fakes and shiftiness and shows an excellent ability to create shots for himself … Finishes well with either hand … Able to utilize a floater in the lane over bigger defenders … Works hard to free himself for shots off the ball … Will surprise with his athleticism and go up and flush one if he gets a lane to the basket … Solid rebounder despite not being an explosive standstill leaper … Good at tipping the ball … Plays the passing lanes well. Solid ball hawk …

Weaknesses: His versatility is great but… Not a pure point guard and he’s undersized for the SG position … Lack of quickness could create problems for him getting free for shots at the next level … Quickness is solid, but doesn’t have an elite level first step. Will not be able to blow by elite, longer athletes … A below average athlete when you take his size into consideration. Has more athleticism than he plays with at all times … A good passer but just average by point guard standards … Lacks visibility playing in the Colonial Athletic Association … Short stride limits his speed in open floor … Runs into trouble sometimes when he overpenetrates as he isn’t explosive enough to finish in traffic … 75% from the FT line doesn’t do his shooting ability justice … Shooting numbers were surprisingly low as a junior …

Notes: Leads George Mason in scoring at 15.3 ppg. Has shown steady improvement in his scoring output throughout his career …

    You seriously do a scouting report on Cam Long before you do one on Charles Jenkins, the best player in the CAA, very disrespectful.
