NBA Comparison: Craig Hodges

Aran Smith – 10/23/2007

Strengths: One of the top pure shooters in the college game … Has the ability to spot up and shoot with tremendous range … Also shows a solid ability to score off the bounce creating offense for himself against quality defenders … Very competitive and clutch player … An underrated athlete, can get up and dunk when the occasion arises, although he’s never going to be confused with a physical freak … His age is more of a negative than positive, but at 24 years of age, teams appreciate the fact that he’s emotionally mature and more "NBA ready" than the average draftee … Hard worker who keeps himself in tremendous physical condition (averaged 36 min per game as a junior) … 88% free throw shooter is truly at an elite level … Really hustles and fights for rebounds, leading the entire team at 6.3 rpg as a junior …

Weaknesses: Size creates a big hurdle for him … Strictly a 2-guard, he lacks any real point guard skills despite solid passing and ball handling ability … At 6-2, it’s hard to imagine him as more than a role shooter on the NBA level … His size will obviously create match up problems at the 2-guard position as the average 6-6 SG on the NBA level will be able to exploit him shooting over him or posting him up … He’ll be 25 on draft day having gone on a 2 year Mormon Mission. While he’s not seen as an athletic freak with physical attributes left to develop, his age suggests he has less upside left to tap … At 175 pounds, he lacks a great NBA body, adding some strength would be a plus but it’s unlikely he can add much at his age …

Outlook: Carroll figures to become the Aggies all time leading scorer in his senior year … Suffers playing the the WAC as his exposure and competition level is lacking. Some coaches and scouts feel he would get "JJ Redick type hype" if he played for a high profile program such as Duke … Carroll’s skill level gives him a great chance to have a career in professional basketball whether it be in the NBA as a role player or overseas …
