NBA Comparison: Ish Smith/Jamaal Tinsley

Strengths: 6’2.25 guard … Explosive athleticism with good body control … Quick first step and in the open floor … Finishes well at the rim … Shoots well from midrange and three … Shoots well both off the dribble and catch … Gets good elevation on jump shot and creates space using his step … Can stop on a dime … Scores in bunches and heats up quickly … Plays well on and off the ball … Can serve as a playmaker for others … Draws fouls and a reliable free throw shooter … Good ballhandler. Changes direction and speed well with the ball. Penetrates and gets to the rim. Fearless driver and challenges bigger defenders in the paint. Doesn’t favor a side when driving … Contributes in multiple statistical categories … Rebounds well for a guard … Brings a consistent effort and competitiveness on both ends. Active hands and quick feet. Good on ball defender and plays passing lanes well …

Weaknesses: Doesn’t have great size or length with a 6’3.5 wingspan and 8’1 standing reach … At this point he’s more of an undersized scoring guard than true point … Played primarily as the two-guard for Oak Hill as a junior and senior alongside Matt Coleman in the backcourt … While he records assists, he still has a ways to go in elevating his teammates … Sometimes attacks the middle, leaves his feet, and gets caught in the air when making a pass … Has room to add strength … A bit older for his class …

Outlook: Measured 6-2.25 in shoes, 186 lbs, 6-3.5 wingspan, and a 8-1 standing reach at the 2017 Hoop Summit … Iowa State freshman … Participated in the Nike Hoop Summit (11 points and seven assists) and Derby Classic (13 points) …
