NBA Comparison: Reggie Bullock

Strengths: 6’8 prolific shooter … Good size for a wing … Great shooter with limitless range and quick release. Good balance, footwork, and release point. Reliable scoring option at a high-volume while staying efficient. Shoots well off the dribble or move, curls/pin downs, only needs a little bit of space, and shoots well while fading away. Shoots well from midrange. Shot a 3rd best 41.6% 3PT% on 8.9 3PT attempts per game over the NIBC in 2021-22 … Led the NIBC in scoring with 17.5 points per game over the NIBC in 2021-22 … His shot keeps the defense tense and can open driving opportunities. Can make the right play when getting ran off the 3PT line. Isn’t afraid to drive to his left (weak hand) … Moves well without the ball … Anticipates very well when defending off the ball with good hands and deflects a lot of passes. Solid on ball defender. Averaged a 4th best 1.8 steals per game over the NIBC in 2021-22 … Easy to see him translating at higher levels and there’s no questioning his position/role. Can make an immediate impact …

Weaknesses: Solid athlete but not super explosive and doesn’t show it too much in the half-court … Has room to add strength and gets knocked off balance when making contact … Minimal slashing ability, attacks closeouts but doesn’t have a lot of creativity with the ball. Doesn’t break down the defense or create much space/separation with his dribble. Generally, pulls up off one or two dribbles, takes a straight attack, or picks his dribble up. Struggles in traffic whether it’s keeping his dribble or trying to get off a clean shot at the rim … Can improve scoring efficiency overall. Averaged 10.4 points per game on 40% FG% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2021 and 17.5 points per game on 46.1% FG% over the NIBC in 2021-22 … Solid passer and can make the right play but isn’t an advanced playmaker … Not a great rebounder for size … As someone who doesn’t stand out as a rebounder or playmaker, he can lack offensive contribution if his shot’s not falling …

Outlook: Incoming Kansas freshman … 2022 McDonald’s All-American … Played in the 2022 Nike Hoop Summit … 2022 Gatorade Player of the Year … 2020 and 2022 Kansas Gatorade Player of the Year …
