NBA Comparison: Jaren Jackson Jr.

Strengths: 6’9 left-handed forward … Good length with a 7’0 wingspan … Good frame that should fill out … Well-coordinated and very mobile. Moves with fluidity and runs the floor with long strides. Good athlete and finishes above the rim with ease … Can hit floaters and finish at the rim with either hand … Good foundation as a faceup threat. Good ball rotation and is capable of shooting out to the 3PT line … Handles the ball well enough to start the offense after a defensive rebound. Solid court vision at his size. Can make the right pass when his driving path gets cut off … Shows commitment on the defensive end. Rotates and switches well as a versatile defender, showing comfort defending multiple positions …

Weaknesses: Has much room to get stronger but should fill out fine … Inefficient scorer and underwhelmed his junior year at Montverde. Scoring stats: 4.5 PPG 35% FG% NIBC 2021-22, 11.5 PPG 44.4% FG% NBPA Top 100 2022, 10.3 PPG 43% FG% Nike EYBL 2022 … Lacks a diverse post-game and has much room to expand but can still look to utilize his size mismatch and take smaller defenders into the post more often. Drifts to the perimeter and settles for outside shots too often … Inefficient 3PT shooter and isn’t a consistent threat stretching the floor. Wrist flairs out during follow through and tends to miss in different ways throughout the game: too long, short, or to the left. 3PT shooting: 25% 3PT% 2 3PTA NIBC 2021-22, 28.6% 3PT% 3.5 3PTA NBPA Top 100 2022, 18.2% 3PT% 2.5 3PTA Nike EYBL 2022 … Poor free throw shooter: 60% FT% NIBC 2021-22, 43.8% FT% NBPA TOP 100 2022, 48.2% FT% Nike EYBL 2022 … Underwhelming rebounder: 4.1 RPG NIBC 2021-22, 5.5 RPG NBPA Top 100 2022, 6.4 RPG Nike EYBL 2022 … Isn’t much of a shot blocker and doesn’t provide rim protection. At his size and physical ability, he has much room to improve in this area. Shot blocking: 0.2 BPG NIBC 2021-22, 0.7 BPG NBPA Top 100 2022, 0.5 BPG Nike EYBL 2022 … Needs an identity as a prospect and an offensive role. Has the tools and foundation to be a versatile prospect that’s valued in today’s game but has a way to go to get there. While he can play on the perimeter and in the paint a bit, he doesn’t do either consistently well enough yet … Production must increase …

Outlook: Oregon commit … Scored 11 points and grabbed 9 rebounds in the 2024 UA Next Elite 24 …
