NBA Comparison: Marvin Williams

Strengths: 6’7 wing … Good length with a 6’10 wingspan … Strong frame that has been filled out throughout high school … Explosive athlete with fluid movements. Quick first step and aggressive slasher. Can be hard to stop in transition. Initiates contact and draws fouls at a solid rate … Provides a scoring mentality. Although efficiency can improve, he’s a safe bet to fill up the scoring column … Shooting range extends to the NBA 3PT line. Can shoot off the dribble with good elevation and arc. Gets his shot off with a little bit of space … Shows ability and willingness to post up smaller defenders and utilized the mismatch … Unselfish with solid passing ability, knows where his open shooters are. Doesn’t hunt for his scoring … Good rebounder for position. Rebounding stats: 8 RPG U16 Americas Championship 2019, 8.4 RPG adidas 3SSB 2021, 6.5 RPG NIBC 2021-22 … Good tools, versatility, and physicality as a defender. Solid shot blocker for position …

Weaknesses: Can improve shooting consistency and efficiency, also as a finisher at the rim. Scoring stats: 14.8 PPG 46.2% FG% U16 Americas Championship 2019, 21.2 PPG 41.6% FG% 3SSB 2021, 14 PPG 46.8% FG% NIBC 2021-22 … Settles for deep 3s at times and more of a streaky shooter than knock down. 3PT Shooting: 23.5% 3PT% 3.4 3PTA U16 Americas Championship 2019, 28.6% 3PT% adidas 3SSB 2021, 29.3% 3PT% 4.1 3PTA NIBC 2021-22 … Can improve as a ball-handler as he needs triple-threat to get to the rim. Doesn’t have a lot of creativity or wiggle off the dribble … Can add more to his scoring arsenal, especially in the half-court, if that’s going to be his identity at the next levels … Needs a more consistent motor as he can be content spotting up or standing at the elbow and watching the action. Can show more commitment defensively … Favors going right on his drives … Can grow as a leader …

Outlook: Incoming Kentucky freshman … Transferred to Oak Hill Academy for his senior year … Recorded 13 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3PT), 6 rebounds, and 5 assists in the 2022 McDonald’s All-American … Recorded 21 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 steals in the 2022 Jordan Brand Classic … 2021 Ohio Gatorade Player of the Year … 2022 Virginia Gatorade Player of the Year … 2022 Naismith All-American 2nd Team … Won MVP and Gold at the U16 Americas Championship in 2019 …
