NBA Comparison: N/A

Strengths: A combo guard who excels playing at a high pace … He likes to keep the pressure on the defense by looking to attack in transition … Has good length and a very impressive 37’ max vert … His jumper is smooth and he has a very compact and efficient release … He has shot a good percentage from beyond the arc during his college career as well as overseas … Plays with a lot of confidence and is not afraid to make the big play … Attacks contact and knows how to draw fouls … Off the dribble he is dangerous due to his solid handle as well as his ability to turn the corner and explode … As a defender, his energy and quickness make him a pest and he is also able to use his long arms to disrupt the passing lanes … As a rebounder he is extremely good, because he is willing to get to the glass, but also because of his leaping ability as well as good anticipation …

Weaknesses: Plays with a scorer’s mentality and does not have the natural playmaking ability that a player at 6’1 must have … In the pick and roll he struggles reading the action and making the plays when the defense rotates … Struggles finishing over bigger help defenders … His light frame makes it difficult for him to attack stronger guards and it also gives him trouble defending because he gets bodied out of position … After a solid freshman year at the line, he has struggled shooting from the charity stripe during his last 2 seasons (64% and 70%) … Spent the last season playing in the UBL, which is the 2nd tier of the Ukrainian league …

Notes: Was forced to take his game overseas due to academic issues at Arkansas.
