HoopHall Classic Scouting Reports: Elite Prospects (Part Three)
January 23, 2011
Jonathan Givony

One of the most physically gifted wing players seen at this event, it's not difficult to tell what recruiting analysts like about Amir Garrett (#76 Scout, #51 Rivals, #63 ESPN) on first glance.

Left-handed, with an outstanding frame, long arms and excellent athleticism, Garrett has all the tools college coaches want to see from a wing prospect, even if he doesn't really have the skill-level or feel for the game to really take advantage of that at this stage.

Garrett is a fairly limited player offensively, showing average ball-handling skills and a jump-shot that seems to vary on every attempt. Strictly a straight-line dribbler, Garrett can only operate at one speed at the moment and has a tendency to shoot the ball on the way down. Once in a while he'll release a nice looking shot, showing he has potential in this area, but he lacks any type of real consistency at the moment with his offensive game.

Defensively, Garrett has strong potential, with his long arms and nice body, coupled with his excellent lateral quickness. When dialed in, he can be quite a handful for opposing players in man to man situations. His feel for the game is just average at the moment, though, and he tends to float on occasion too, looking a bit hot and cold in his effort level depending on the momentum of the game.

These are not rare qualities in such a young player, especially one who is still learning the game like Garrett, so we'll have to check back in a few years and see how he's coming along.
