NBA Comparison: Jonas Jerebko/Luc Richard Mbah Moute

Strengths: Active, athletic forward who has the versatility to play multiple positions and plays with consistent energy … Multi-faceted player with the ability to excel on both ends, both inside and out … Appears to have a lot of potential left to develop … A long, explosive “next level” athlete … Shows the ability to guard larger players and play much bigger than his 6’7 size … Appears to have a wingspan in the 7’1 foot range … Possesses good toughness and seeks out contact around the basket … Has the look of a guy that can become a valuable defender a la Luc Richard Mbah a Moute with his “small ball four” capabilities for the next level … Understands how to operate in the paint, scoring from both back to the basket, as well as facing up … Fills up a stat sheet and seems to impact games without always being the team’s high scorer … Plays with a lot of determination and appears to have a presence and natural leadership about him … Gives solid effort on the defensive end, blocking a lot of shots for his size (had 5 against New Mexico) … Excellent rebounder, really crashes the glass, seeks out the ball and antipates well … Has touch. His ability to hit free throws at a solid clip leads to optimism about his ability to improve his form and become more of a mid-range and even outside threat … Has developed a reputation for being a hard worker and a solid individual …

Weaknesses: Needs to improve as an outside shooter … Lacks a fluid stroke, release is a bit flat, arm doesn’t get full extension or enough follow through … Should be able to improve his shot with focus on improving his form, but current form will limit his ability to extend his jump shot and connect at an efficient rate … Could be labeled a tweener by those that see him as a small four with limited ball skills … Facilitating for others is not a part of his repertoire … Not a great passer, has not shown a great ability to find teammates … Needs to become more proficient as a ball handler and passer to become a full time wing … Still somewhat unproven and will need to sustain a high level of play for an entire season before considering leaving for the NBA …

Should be able to fill a role for an NBA team even if his shooting never becomes a real strength … Has been compared by scouts to former fellow Buffalo Andre Roberson, and shades of a less athletic Shawn Marion …

Notes: Grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada … Played his senior year at Middlebrooks High School in Los Angeles after transferring from Las Vegas High … Averaged 17 points, and 7.3 boards as a junior at Las Vegas High … Came into Colorado as a four star recruit, unranked on many top 100 lists, checking in at 123rd on Rivals list following his senior year …
