NBA Comparison: Kendrick Nunn

Strengths: An excellent and disruptive defender, evidenced by his 2.5 steals per game in his senior season at Penn State … Great defensive footwork … Is an adequate rebounder for a guard, especially on the offensive glass … Good decision-maker … Brings a much-needed competitive energy to the floor … Fairly good shooter, shooting above 40% on the year … Excellent at creating stops defensively … Solid quick-twitch jumping ability on lobs and baseline cuts … Finishes well at the rim … Able to set position against bigger opponents in the post due to his exceptional lower body strength … Very comfortable leading a fast break and passes the ball to open teammates …

Weaknesses: Started his career at Penn State as a non-factor from 3-point range, converting just 3 of his 39 attempts as a freshman (7.7%) … Although his 3-point shooting has progressed tremendously in the past three seasons, he will still need to prove to NBA teams that he can hit shots at consistent rate … Needs to improve from the foul line (66%) … Sometimes loses his man on defense by over-playing certain actions … Does not draw enough fouls and is foul prone … Lacks ideal size as a 6'4 shooting guard ...

Outlook: An athletic, skilled combo guard that can shoot and pass … In terms of landing a spot in the NBA, everything hinges on his ability to develop a reliable jump shot … He is not a heralded name among players in college basketball, but is a type of player who can have an impact on a winning team off the bench … Will likely go undrafted, but there is a possibility that a team will take chance on him in the late second round and he should get a shot to make a team as a summer league invite …

Notes: 6’5’’, 214 pounds … Recorded 1,079 points, 540 rebounds, 310 assists and 250 steals in his collegiate career … His 250 career steals rank second in Penn State history and seventh in Big Ten history, becoming the only player in Big Ten history to lead the conference in steals for three consecutive seasons … Named to the Big Ten’s All-Defensive Team twice in his career, winning the conference’s defensive player of the year as a junior ... Attended highly acclaimed Oak Hill Academy ...
