NBA Comparison: Nickeil Alexander-Walker

Strengths: 6’4 combo guard … Great length with a 6’9.5 wingspan … Solid upper body strength … Possesses ideal combo guard skills. Can play on or off the ball. Gels well with whoever’s on his team. Good patience and has proper balance of knowing when to score vs when to facilitate. He doesn’t hunt for his scoring and is effective when he’s not scoring … Very good shooter, with ability to shoot off the catch or dribble with proper arc. Shoots well from midrange, 3PT, and even NBA 3PT range … Good ball handler, can create and doesn’t over-dribble. With his length, he has a wide radius of reach with his dribble. Penetrates off the dribble and handles well when pressured … Solid creativity as a finisher and shows good body control on attacks … Averaged 14.8 points per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 and 19.1 points per game at 45.8% FG% in 2019 … Uses floater when appropriate … Draws fouls at a good rate and good free throw shooter. Shot 5.4 free throws per game at 76.9% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Good read and react ability. Drives and kicks when appropriate … Good rebounder for position … Very good length defensively. Averaged 1.4 steals per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Has performed well in big games throughout high school and displayed leadership …

Weaknesses: Solid athlete and long but not real explosive or incredibly quick … Movement with the ball is a bit more mechanical than fluid … Very good shooter, but he’s not necessarily elite in any other area and shooting numbers weren’t great over the Nike EYBL. Shot 31.1% 3PT% on 6.3 attempts per game in 2018 and 30.7% 3PT% on 5.7 attempts per game in 2019 … Playmaking is solid and has been strong at the high school level, but he’s not an incredibly advanced passer. Averaged 2.5 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 …

Outlook: Texas Tech freshman … Scored 37 points to earn MVP of the championship game of the Grind Session in 2020 … 2020 McDonald’s All-American … Named to the 2020 Jordan Brand Classic … Helped Team WhyNot to the 2019 Peach Jam championship game, scoring 22 points (9-11 FG) and grabbing ten rebounds … 2019 All-EYBL: Third Team … 2019 Grind Session 1st Team …
