NBA Comparison: Delonte West

Strengths:  A mature, tough nosed freshman combo with intriguing versatility … Possesses a scorer’s mentality. Has an excellent feel for the game, displaying a variety of ways to score and generally makes the right play … Brings a lot of versatility with his ability to defend either guard position and play a smart brand of unselfish, team ball … Effective scorer who was excellent from behind the arch this year (42.6% from three on a high volume of shots 60-141, making 2.2 of 5.2 per game) … Has a developed body for a freshman and solid length with a 6-foot-7 wingspan … Shows solid intangibles and leadership qualities … Excels at creating in isolation, with the ability to get opponents off balance and pull up quickly … Quality ball handler … Takes what the defense gives him … Very good in catch and shoot situations … Not a speed burner, but makes up for it with hesitation dribbles and fakes to get open … Solid floor game, with good ability to pull up in mid-range … Clean, concise shooting motion … Polished step back jumper … His quick release and long arms help him to get shots off on defenders … Comfortable shooting without much space … Utilizes floaters well when there are bigs obstructing his path to the rim … Did not play the point position a great deal at Texas Tech, but there’s intrigue in his potential as a combo guard that can defend and play back up point guard at the next level … Has surprising ability to rise and block shots, utilizing his quick leaping ability and sneaky length … Solid rebounder for a guard with 4 per game, getting up for boards and seeking them out with good energy … One of the youngest prospects in the entire draft, having turned 19 in early June …

Weaknesses: Undersized at the 2G position at 6’4  … More of a scorer than a true point that can run a team and set the table … Not the fastest player. Lacks elite burst and speed in the open floor … Can improve in his ability to play the pick and roll … First step is just average, and struggles to get by and separate against quick defenders … Shot just 64% from the free throw line in his freshman season … His struggles from the line are a bit of a mystery considering how proficient a three point shooter he was … An explosive leaper, but doesn’t always utilize it. Seems to explode better off of two feet or when he has time to gather, but not as explosive off a full sprint … Appeared to have more explosiveness in high school … Can be a little sloppy with his passing … While his assist to turnover numbers were at least in the positive (2.2/2.0), he doesn’t generally create offense for others … Occasionally will make impressive passes, but is more adept at scoring and creating for himself …

Overall: Considered a likely mid-to late first rounder for the 2020 NBA draft … Had some big performances in big games including some huge shots against conference rival Kansas to bring the Red Raiders back in their game at Allen Fieldhouse … Improved considerably as a shooter from his high school days … Has drawn comparisons to Boston Celtic guard Marcus Smart …

Notes: Measured: 6’2.50” barefoot, 6’3.75” in shoes, 8’4.50” standing reach, 193.4 lbs, and 6’6.00 wingspan at the 2020 NBA Combine … Ramsey measured 6’2 barefoot, 6’3 in shoes, 190 lbs, with a 6’6 wingspan, and a 8’0.5 standing reach in mid 2018 …Ranked 3st in the ESPN Top 100 Senior rankings, ranked 32nd by 247 Sports coming out of high school … Averaged 15 ppg 4 rpg, 2.2 apg and 2.2 three pointers made per game as a freshman at Texas Tech … Native of Arlington, TX … Led Duncanville to a Class 6A state championship title. Averaged 21 pts and 6 rebounds for Duncanville as a senior … Spent his freshman and sophomore seasons at Mansfield Summit, transferred for his junior season to IMG Academy in Fla. and then as a senior decided to transfer to Oak Hill Academy, but after a few weeks there, moved back to Texas and registered at Duncanville where he led them to a State title and was awarded Texas high school player of the year …
