NBA Comparison: Rudy Gay

Strengths: 6’7 left-handed athletic forward … Fluid and runs the floor very well with long strides. Explosive athlete. Pops off the ground quick with an impressive second jump. Shows off high-flying ability in the open floor. Reads dunk opportunities in half-court situations and against a set defense. Good body control … Consistent motor, intensity, and aggression. Active off the ball and scores well on cutting opportunities … Very efficient scorer and accurate within close. Good touch on jump hook and uses glass when appropriate. Can score when crowded in the paint. Can hit a face-up jumper within range … Averaged 12.2 points per game on 72.9% FG% over the Nike EYBL in 2021 and 10.1 points per game on 66.2% FG% (2nd best) over the NIBC in 2021-22 … Good rebounder on both ends and reads opportunities for tip-slams. Averaged a 3rd best 7.8 rebounds (2nd best 3.6 offensive) per game over the NIBC in 2021-22 … Versatile defender, moves well laterally, and has shown ability to switch onto multiple positions. Solid shot blocker. Averaged a 5th best 1.4 blocks per game over the NIBC in 2021-22. Gets his hands on everything defensively and jumps passes to start the break … Solid passing and court vision for position … Doesn’t try to do too much or play outside his game … Vocal …

Weaknesses: Has room to add strength … Left-hand dominant … Isn’t always heavily involved with the offense. Can expand offensive game as he scores a heavy amount on assisted baskets and converting offensive boards. Being reliant on out-hustling opponents will be more difficult at the next levels … Scoring range is limited as he’s not a 3PT threat at this stage in his development and really doesn’t score much outside the paint. Shot 20% on 0.4 3PT attempts per game over the Nike EYBL in 2021 and only attempted 2 3PTers over 10 games in the NIBC in 2021-22 … Has a lot of room to improve as a free throw shooter. Shot 54.8% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2021 and 42.3% FT% over the NIBC in 2021-22 …

Outlook: Incoming Texas freshman … 2022 McDonald’s All-American … MVP of the 2022 Jordan Brand Classic with 18 points (9-10 FG) … Played in the 2022 Nike Hoop Summit … MVP of the City of Palms in 2021 … Helped Montverde win the 2022 Geico National Championship …
