NBA Comparison: Markelle Fultz

Strengths: 6’4 combo guard … Strong build and body frame. Finishes well through contact … Good athlete. Jumps well off one or both feet with good body control … Good scorer in the half-court and has a knack for hitting difficult shots. Gets shots off with little space from the defender. Finished 2nd in scoring with 16.9 points per game on 48.8% FG% over the NIBC in 2021-22 … Can heat up quickly. Squares up and sets feet quickly, also has a quick release. Shot 42.1% 3PT% on 3.8 3PT attempts per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2021 and 36.1% 3PT% on 6.1 3PT attempts per game over the NIBC in 2021-22. Good free throw shooter. Shot a solid 77.1% FT% over the NIBC in 2021-22 … Quick with the ball and stays under control when picking up speed. Changes direction well and gets into the paint. Good instincts and reactive to the defense with the ball. Drives well going to both his left and right. Good finisher at the rim … Can play on or off the ball … Solid passer, can make some impressive lead passes and thread the needle at times. Reads double-teams and avoids traps well … Stays engaged defensively. Defends well on the ball and has active hands …

Weaknesses: Has room to tighten up and improve his body, has shown in his (lack of) athleticism and explosion/quickness closing out his high school career … Still has room to improve 3PT consistency as he’s more on the streaky side. Doesn’t consistently make his open knock-down opportunities but the foundation is there … Solid passer and ball-handler but has a way to go if he’s going to run the point, even as a combo, at the next levels. Only averaged 1.2 assists per game over the NIBC in 2021-22. Tends to have more turnovers than assists …

Outlook: Incoming Baylor freshman … Transferred to IMG Academy for his senior year … Scored 13 points in the 2022 McDonald’s All-American Game … Played in the 2022 Jordan Brand Classic … Played in the 2022 Nike Hoop Summit … MVP of the 2022 Iverson Classic with 21 points … Played in the 2019 Underclassman All-American Game … 2022 Naismith High School Player of the Year finalist …
