NBA Comparison: Corey Brewer

Strengths: 6’7 athletic forward … Very good size and length for a wing with a 7’3 wingspan … Solid strength … High-level athlete with a reported 41-inch vertical. Displays athleticism in the open floor and finds dunk opportunities in the half-court as well … Versatile skill set … Natural and aggressive scorer. Good variety as a scorer, reads opportunities well and can usually convert taking what the defense gives him. While he can get out of control at times, he can create offense out of nothing … Changes speed and direction well with the ball. Effective slasher and covers a lot of ground on drives. Can finish with either hand. Scores in the crowded paint and doesn’t shy away from physicality … Draws fouls at a good rate … Can score in the post, utilizes his size mismatch well … Good tools, intensity, and versatility on the defensive end, showing a lot of potential as a two-way wing. Can lock in on the ball and disrupts the ball-handler, defends off the ball and jumps passes, and can turn defense into offense. Averaged 2 steals per game at each Nike EYBL, NBPA Top 100 (2nd best), and Pangos All-American Camp (1st) in 2021 … Effortless shot and range extends to the 3PT line. Can hit shots off the dribble … Generally, a reliable free throw shooter. Shot 90% FT% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2021 … Can thread the needle and is capable of making nice passes. Plays well in transition as both a leader and finisher … Good rebounder for position. Averaged 7.4 rebounds (2.7 offensive) per game over the Nike EYBL in 2021 … Vocal … Assertive, plays hard, and his presence is always felt when he’s on the floor. Never goes through the motions. Highly confident and competitive, doesn’t second guess himself …

Weaknesses: Can improve shooting consistency and scoring efficiency. Averaged 12.3 points per game on 46.8% FG% over the Nike EYBL and 6.8 points per game on 29.4% FG% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2021 … Shot 18.8% 3PT% on 1.3 3PT attempts per game over the Nike EYBL and 10.5% 3PT% on 3.2 3PT attempts per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2021 … Can improve defensive positioning and fundamentals. Leaves his feet, reaches in, and picks up unnecessary fouls at times … Can be very turnover prone, playing loose and trying to do too much. Has room to tighten up as a ball-handler. Throws wild passes at times, isn’t afraid to attempt one-hand full-court passes, among other home run plays, and can improve decision making overall. Looks for fouls and ends up on the floor somewhat often … Wears his emotions at times …

Outlook: Incoming Arkansas freshman … Transferred to Link Academy for his senior year … 2022 McDonald’s All-American … Named to the 2022 Jordan Brand Classic … 2021 Les Schwab Invitational MVP …
