High School Class of 2014 Scouting Reports, Part Two- the Big Men
September 4, 2013
Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: 247: #33, ESPN: #49, Scout: #79, Rivals: #57
Committed to Utah

Strengths:
-Decent size for a combo forward at 6-8ish. Has a frame that should fill out
-Excellent shooter. Very good shooting mechanics
-Intelligent player who knows how to operate within a system. Makes the extra pass. Knows how to play. Feeds the post
-Competes defensively and on the glass. Gets in the passing lanes. Blocks shots on occasion with nice timing. Gets hands on offensive rebounds

Weaknesses:
-Somewhat stuck between the 3 and the 4
-Little bit akwward in way he runs. Doesn't play extended
-Has some athleticism but doesn't really know how to use it in the half-court yet
-Needs to get stronger
-Limited ball-handler skills. Struggles to create high percentage shots for himself in the half-court. Rarely gets all the way to the basket
-Average finisher around the basket
-Has a low release point on his jumper
-Struggles guarding the 4. Lacks strength and a degree of toughness
-Quick enough laterally to guard small forwards?

Outlook: Lefty with a strong basketball IQ and a nice stroke from outside. Should fit in nicely into a disciplined half-court college system thanks to unselfishness and feel for game. Shows the potential to evolve into more than just a one-dimensional stretch four, but must continue to get stronger and develop his skill-set on both ends of the court.
