NBA Comparison: Dennis Smith

Strengths: 6’3 electric point guard … Explosive athlete with good body control, stands out against the other point guards of his class. Jumps well off one or both feet, also shows athleticism in the open floor as well as the half court. Quick second jump and converts a lot of his own missed layups … Quick first step with the ball and effective jab step. Consistently plays hard with good aggression. Fearless attacking the rim and a very good slasher. Gets into the paint at a good rate and good finisher at the rim … Fast in the open floor with the ball. Shifty ball handler and drives well going to either his right or left. Breaks down defense, maneuvers through tight spaces with the ball, and doesn’t need triple threat to beat the defense … Flashy passing ability and makes passes with either hand. Averaged 3.6 assists to 1.4 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Rebounds well for position … Good quickness, anticipation, and effort defensively. Very good shot blocker for a guard and contests without fouling …

Weaknesses: Length doesn’t stand out with a 6’4.5 wingspan … Still has room to fill out frame and add strength … Reliant on his athleticism on drives rather than technique, attacks without a plan at times and tries to convert difficult shots at the rim … Jump shooting isn’t consistent, his results tend to be all over the place. Tends to hit difficult shots at times but miss open knock down opportunities at other times. Shot 14.3% 3PT% and 57.9% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Can tighten up ball handling, it gets loose at times when he picks up speed. Makes impressive passes but has a way to go as a playmaker. Puts too much heat and tries to make home run passes at times …

Outlook: Alabama freshman … 2021 McDonald’s All-American … Named to the 2021 Jordan Brand Classic … 2020 Alabama Gatorade Player of the Year … 2020 & 2021 Alabama Mr. Basketball … Played in the 2019 Underclassman All-American Game …
