Braxton Blackwell, 6'7, Small Forward, Christ Presbyterian (TN), Class of 2016

Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: Scout #41, 24/7 #24, Rivals #33, ESPN #25

-Good size. Very strong frame
-Smooth, fluid player
-Fundamentally sound
-Good scoring instincts
-Strong feel for game
-Excellent passer
-Unselfish player
-Solid ball-handler
-Competitive defender
-Gets in a low stance on the perimeter, closes out well

-Good, not great athlete
-Looks physically mature already relative to his peers
-Average finisher around the basket
-Doesn't show much range on his jump-shot at this stage. Shooting mechanics are improvable
-A year old for his class. Will turn 20 during his freshman year of college

Outlook: Mature, versatile young player with strong intangibles and a well-rounded skill-set. Needs to continue to work on his jump-shot to make the transition from power forward to the perimeter, but knows how to play and shows good intensity and smarts.
