NBA Comparison: Bobby Jackson

Strengths: 6’0 point guard … Good length with a 6’5 wingspan … Solid build … Quick with the ball and makes moves in the open floor without losing speed … Very good shooter with proper mechanics, arc, and ball rotation. Shot 39.1% 3PT% on 3.3 attempts per game at the U19 World Cup in 2021 … Good shot selection and doesn’t hunt for points … Reliable free throw shooter … Solid passer and ball handler. Doesn’t get rattled under pressure or pick up his dribble early. Makes passes with either hand. Averaged 3.4 assists to 2 turnovers per game at the U19 World Cup in 2021… Good rebounder for position … Very good on ball defender and harasses with active hands. Anticipates and jumps passes. Good defensive commitment and doesn’t get caught watching the action … Always under control …

Weaknesses: Jumps well off one foot but generally shows it in the open floor, plays below the rim in the half-court. Scoring in the paint and finishing at the rim may be an obstacle at the next levels. Averaged 7.7 points per game on 42% FG% at the U19 World Cup in 2021 … Good ball handler but isn’t incredibly creative and doesn’t show a lot of ability to break down the defense. Solid passing ability but doesn’t show a lot of advanced reads as an initiator … Can protect the ball better on drives …

Outlook: Tennessee freshman … Transferred to Sunrise Christian Academy for his senior year … 2021 McDonald’s All-American … Named to the 2021 Jordan Brand Classic … Named to the 2021 Nike Hoop Summit … 2021 Kansas Gatorade Player of the Year … Won Gold at the U19 World Cup in 2021 … 2019 & 2020 Tennessee Mr. Basketball …
