NBA Comparison: Brad Wanamaker

Strengths: Tough nosed off guard with intrigue due to his leadership and experience … An elite mid-range shooter who gets great elevation on his jump shots to limit contests from defenders … Explosive athlete who finishes aggressively above and around the rim … Nearly impossible to stop when he is driving to his left and getting close to the rim … Can be an effective secondary ball-handler who can create for himself with his athleticism and lethal mid-range jumper … Great rebounding guard who uses relentless energy, off-ball movement and high vertical to get defensive rebounds and finish put-back dunks … Definition of a spark plug player who plays with a huge motor and energy … Moves extremely well laterally on the defensive end and puts a ton of pressure on ball-handlers and is able to stick with shooters who move constantly off the ball … A physical slasher who gets to the line at a high rate and welcomes contact in the lane. He improved as a free-throw shooter as well to finish his career, shooting 80% at the line on nearly four attempts per game in his final two seasons …

Weaknesses: Almost exclusively uses his left hand on drives and tends to only use his left hand on layups … Perimeter shooting is incredibly inconsistent and probably isn’t reliable enough to encourage a ton of shots at the next level … Doesn’t have great size for a wing prospect at just 6’4 and doesn’t have the playmaking skills to let him run the offense at point guard … Dribbles the ball high off the ground, which could lead to turnovers and strips from off-ball defenders … While he is a decent ball-handler and passer, he doesn’t have the court vision or anticipation to complement these qualities, which his career 1.3 assists per game suggests … One of the older prospects in the 2022 class who played four seasons at three different schools, including a redshirt season after his freshman season at St. Bonaventure

Notes: Started his career in 2017 with St. Bonaventure before continuing his career at Penn State and Iowa State … 2022 Big 12 Newcomer of the Year and All-Big 12 First Team … Named to Wooden Award and Naismith Midseason Watch List … Philadelphia native who earned first-team all-state in Class 6A
