NBA Comparison: Mo Harkless/Travis Outlaw

Strengths: 6’9 explosive forward ... Great length with a 7'2.25 wingspan and 9'0 standing reach ... Explosive athlete with an aggressive mindset ... Very quick first step ... Jumps well off one or both feet ... Throws down dunks on defenders and attacks the rim off the dribble ... Good slashing ability. Doesn’t shy away from contact … Moves very well at his height and has good versatility … Good motor and activity level … Has shown great progression as a jump shooter, even with ability to pullup off the dribble. Good arc and rotation on shot. … Averaged 13.6 points per game over the Under Armour Association in 2018 ... Finished fourth in scoring at the NBPA Top 100 with 14.4 points per game in 2018 … Great strength and powerful body, doesn’t lack physicality ... Finishes well through contact and draws fouls at a good rate. Shot a second most 6.8 free throws per game over the Under Armour Association in 2018 … Good rebounder on both ends. Finished fifth on the Under Armour Association with eight rebounds per game in 2018 ... Finished third at the NBPA Top 100 with 7.1 rebounds per game in 2018 … Solid ballhandling and passing ability at his height. Can pass out of drives and on the move … Defends well and versatile on that end, defending each position. Gets low in a defensive stance and moves his feet very well ... Averaged 1.1 steals per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 ... Good timing and quick off the ground as a shot blocker, gets chase downs on occasions ... Finished ninth on the Under Armour Association with 2.1 blocks per game in 2018 … Highly confident …

Weaknesses: Needs to add creativity to his dribble, lacks technique when his path gets cut off. Needs work when he can’t dunk it over the defense and finishing contested layups, especially with his left hand. Doesn’t create much in the half court, generally just straight-line slashes to the basket … Can add a floater and midrange game to his offense. He tends to leave his feet without a plan to throw up an off-balanced shot … Perimeter offensive game has room to improve ... Jump shot has shown improvement but is still a work in progress, as well as shot selection. Hunts for his shots and predetermines when he’s going to come down and shoot, rather than feel out the situation. Will take a defensive rebound to the other end to force up an ill-advised shot without making a pass. Settles for contested shots. Has made improvement as a 3PT shooter but some of his shooting numbers going into his senior year include shooting 22.2% 3P% over the Under Armour Association in 2018. Shot 6.7% 3P% (1-15) at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 … Leans forward on free throws and seems off-balanced. Only shot 53.7% FT% over the Under Armour Association in 2018. Shot 60.6% FT% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 … Decision making with the ball can improve as well as cutting down on turnovers. Can be more willing as a passer but can also be very loose/wild with his passing. Averaged 2.9 turnovers per game over the Under Armour Association in 2018 … Older for an incoming freshman, will turn 20 in September of his freshman year of college …

Outlook: Measured: 6'9 in shoes, 223 lbs, a 7'2.25 wingspan, with a 9'0 standing reach at the 2019 Nike Hoop Summit ... Played his senior year at Montverde Academy … Led the 2019 McDonald’s All-American Game in scoring with 22 points, also grabbed nine rebounds with five on offense … Finished with 15 points, 11 rebounds, and four blocks in the 2019 Nike Hoop Summit …
