High School Class of 2015 Scouting Reports
September 6, 2013
Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: 247: #14, ESPN: #9, Scout: #13, Rivals: #13

-Good size for a wing. Measured 6-6 with shoes
-Very good athlete. Explosive. Can play above the rim with ease
-Good scoring instincts
-Solid perimeter shooter. Nice shooting mechanics and soft touch. Made 38% of his 3-point attempts at the Nike EYBL. Reliable with feet set
-Good in transition
-Very quick first step. Gets to the free throw line at a high rate
-Makes plays defensively thanks to physical tools. Can be outstanding here if he commits to it

-Inefficient scorer. 39% from 2-point range at Nike EYBL
-Average ball-handler. Rarely gets all the way to the basket in the half-court
-Settles too often for off-balance floaters and other low percentage shots inside the arc
-Needs to keep getting stronger, which should help him become a better finisher inside the paint
-Doesn't know how to use his body to create contact.
-Does not have a great wingspan (6-7 )
-Has an ugly looking stroke shooting off the dribble.

Outlook: Developing wing prospect with good physical attributes and a nice stroke from outside. Shows potential as a scorer, but must improve his ball-handling skills and pull-up jumper. Has nice upside to continue to develop long-term.
