Weaknesses: It’s hard to say whether he’s gotten less aggressive or more unselfish … There are games where he simply doesn’t look at the basket … Seems lost offensively at the moment- as if he’s unsure what his game is … His field goal attempts per game have gone up from 8 to 10, but most of his shots come as a result of offensive rebounds or broken plays … Shot mid-range jumpers regularly last season, but appears hesitant as a sophomore … Lacks any range whatsoever, shooting 13% from three as a freshman and 11% this season … Needs to enhance this dimension of his game to keep opponents off balance … His ball handling is a work in progress. Not quick with the ball in his hands and very right hand dominant … Has difficulty beating defenders off the dribble, and quite frankly, rarely tries to … Lack of strength is a major concern as he gets knocked off balance easily … While he has a great looking stroke at the FT line, he rarely get there. Shoots 4 free throws per game … Does not possess an explosive burst or leaping ability … Would certainly benefit from adding upper and lower body muscle … Has difficulty finishing through contact. Cannot hold up defensively against stronger college 4’s … Was suspended for the first three games of the 09-10 season for undisclosed reasons.
Strengths: An offensive minded wing with good scoring ability … At 6’8," gets a lot of elevation on his jumpshot and boasts a nice looking stroke with a high release point … Very tough for defenders to check or block his shot … Has a lot of potential because of his length and coordination … Should be able to "put it all together" when he adds strength and better balance … Takes and makes difficult shots … Nice arc and form on his shot … Capable of handling the ball to an extent and should be able to improve his ability to create shots and get to the rim … His game is tailor-made to play the role of a scorer … His huge wingspan enhances his athleticism making up for decent but not extraordinary leaping ability …
Weaknesses: Ball handling and body control … Currently he struggles to effectively get to the hoop against aggressive defenders due to a shaky handle and inability to muscle through contact … Should hit the weights and add more muscle … Extra core and lower body strength would do him a lot of good: improving his balance and leaping ability … Has had some disciplinary issues in the past, but nothing recently … Role should be as a scorer, does not possess great court vision …
