High School Class of 2013: Elite Prospect Scouting Reports
September 5, 2012
Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: ESPN: #5, Scout: #8, Rivals: #8, 24/7: #9

Strengths:
-Good size for a wing, measured 6-6 at the Nike Skills Academy
-Very long arms, 6-11 wingspan
-Solid frame
-Left handed
-Very low, but quick release on jump-shot
-Elevates well creating separation from defender to get pull-up jumper off
-Can make shots with a hand in his face
-Just turned 17. Young for his class. Could still be growing?
-Very good potential on defense
-Solid rebounder
-Makes extra pass
-Plays with good energy level. Seems to be a good teammate

Maybe will get more athletic. When in rhythm he's terrific.... Can pass.

Weaknesses:
-Good, not great athlete at this stage
-Doesn't have a great first step, nor is he an incredibly explosive leaper
-Not a great ball-handler
-Can't consistently create good shots around the basket in the half-court at a high rate yet
-Needs to improve right hand
-Can make 3-pointers but not quite a marksman just yet. Will take some bad shots on occasion
-Looks comfortable taking a back seat at times
-Lacks experience. Still figuring out how to use his talent consistently
-Gambles a lot on defense

Outlook:
Emerged this summer as a top-10 prospect in the class according to the recruiting services. Looks the part of a top prospect with his outstanding size, length and frame, but doesn't consistently play like one yet. Could still be growing into his frame and likely hasn't reached his peak yet athletically.

Highlights:
