NBA Comparison: Carlos Rogers

Aran Smith – 3/3/2006

Strengths: Very fluid athlete who runs the court exceptionally well … His speed running the floor is very good for a 6-10 player … Has very nice touch on his shot from 15 feet and in … Face up jump shot is good … Excellent free throw shooter at 80% … Extremely long wing span makes him a formidable rebounder and shot blocker … Late bloomer who has shown excellent improvement in his abilities in the past year, becoming South Florida’s main option inside … Upside is intriguing …

Weaknesses: Lacks great body strength, should be able to add some weight, but may always be on the thin side … Will get pushed around due to his lack of body strength … added weight should allow him to play more aggresive inside … Lacks great basketball instincts and post fundamentals … Still figuring out the game, how to use his athletic abilities … Needs to develop better moves inside … Not a good passer, vision and passing ability must be developed … Needs to work on being more aggressive inside and get to the free throw line more often …

Notes: Attended Daytona Beach CC before transferring to South Florida. Playing in the Big East this year has given him good exposure, despite his team’s struggles.
