NBA Comparison: Andrew Nicholson

Strengths: 6’11 versatile big man … Well-coordinated and good athlete. Runs the floor with great mobility and gets off the ground well … Good frame and solid strength in upper body … Efficient scorer. Averaged 11.3 points per game at 47.8% FG% over the adidas Gauntlet in 2018 and 15.8 points per game at 65.2% FG% in 2019. Shot 53.3% FG% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2019 … Can score inside and out. Good shooting form, quick release, and connects well from outside. Shot 35.8% 3PT% over the adidas Gauntlet in 2019 … Can handle the ball at his size, can bring it up the court and shows solid court vision. Does a nice job of finding open shooters … Averaged 8.7 (2 offensive) rebounds per game over the adidas Gauntlet in 2018 and 8.3 (2 offensive) rebounds per game in 2019 … Draws fouls at a good rate. Shot 5.7 free throws per game over the adidas Gauntlet in 2019 … Good confidence …

Weaknesses: Although he can shoot from 3PT range, he settles for deep shots at times. Can utilize his height more around to the basket and has much room to expand his post-game. Would’ve liked to see him more involved with the offense at Hillcrest, rather than drifting to the perimeter and spotting up … Body frame isn’t bad but lower body/base is thin … Would like to see him protect the paint more and block shots at the rate he’s capable of. Can be quicker to blocks shots from help side. Shot blocking stats: 0.2 bpg adidas Nations 2017, 0.3 bpg adidas Gauntlet 2018, 0.8 bpg adidas Gauntlet 2019 … Solid ball handling and court vision but can try to do too much with the ball at times and doesn’t really get anywhere with his dribble. Loses the ball in traffic and can work on handling double teams. Can cut down on unforced turnovers … Older for the 2020 high school class as he turned 20 in November of his freshman year of college …

Outlook: Howard freshman … Cousin of Thon Maker … Transferred to Hillcrest Prep midway through his senior year … MVP of the 2019 SC30 Select Camp … Played in the 2017 Underclassman All-American Game …
