NBA Comparison: Chris Wilcox

Aran Smith – 12/20/2005

Strengths: Very agile and explosive post player who plays with a high level of energy … Excels in the open court with his great speed … Excellent leaper who rebounds the ball well and has the foot speed, arm length and body control to grab rebounds that appear out of range … Huge wingspan allows him to play bigger than his height … Works hard and has a great attitude, very coachable … Good body strength and appears he’ll be able to pack on additional weight and strength without any problem … Keeps it simple offensively with shots around the basket, with a lot of of put backs and ally oops … Hustle guy, not afraid of diving on the floor or in the stands for loose balls … Decent passer who can handle pressure and pass out of a double team …

Weaknesses: Limited offensively, lacks great shooting skills … His range is poor, and his shot mechanics need work … Post skills still need improvement, but his athletic ability make him difficult to guard on the college level, he’ll need to learn better fundamentals to succeed against similarly athletic players on the next level … Free throw shooting has improved but he tends to rush his shot, and shoots the ball too far in front of him and without a clean release … Might be closer to 6-8 than 6-9 …
