Top NBA Draft Prospects in the Pac-12, Part Two|
October 8, 2012
The second leading freshman scorer in the Pac-12 last season at 13.8 points per-game, Chasson Randle had an immediate impact for the Cardinal. A consensus top-70 recruit, Randle played a key role in Stanford's 26-11 finish which culminated in an NIT Championship. Emerging as his team's top offensive threat, he put together a number of very impressive performances, including a 30-point outburst against Arizona State.
A 6'1 combo guard with a lanky 180-pound frame, and good, but not great, athleticism, Randle would not be a standout physical specimen by NBA standards, though he possesses solid speed and quickness for the college game. Considering he played mostly off the ball as a two-guard last season, the Illinois native would be considered extremely undersized for his position at the next level. Randle was not an unwilling passer, and with three years left to develop, still has plenty of time to progress as a playmaker.
Randle's ability to become a better point guard would be a big boost to his long-term prospects as he's already shown plenty of promise as a perimeter scorer. One of the best 3-point shooters in the freshman class Randle proved to be an extremely dangerous spot-up threat last season, connecting at a 43%-clip from beyond the arc. Shooting the ball with a picturesque, high release point, the young guard showed tremendous range and confidence.
That confidence was evident in other aspects of his game as well at times, as Randle showed the ability to hit deep pull-up jump shots off of one or two dribbles in bunches. Lacking a tremendously explosive first step, Randle isn't going consistently to blow by anyone off the dribble, he does, however, show some amount of promise creating his own shot on the pick and roll and using the threat of his jump shot and solid ball-handling ability to freeze his defender and create separation from the midrange.
A limited finisher, Randle made just 47% of his shots at the rim and just 27% of his floaters according to Synergy Sports Technology. He may never be the type of player who can create high-percentage shots for himself in the paint consistently, as he lacks great explosiveness and leaping ability, but he'd be well served to polish his floater or be more aggressive trying to get to the line.
Defensively, Randle is competitive, makes the appropriate decisions within Stanford's team concepts, and shows solid lateral quickness. His lack of strength, size, and experience hurt him at times, especially when defending stronger, quicker guards, but he has the right mentality to be a very good overall defender at the college level in time.
Chasson Randle may not seem to have the highest ceiling, but he has a very good basketball IQ and the makings of an extremely prolific perimeter scorer at the college level. Only a sophomore, now is not the time to draw any definitive long-term conclusions about the 19 year old guard. Regardless, Randle will be one of the more intriguing players in the Pac-12 this season, and it shouldn't be long until he ranks among the conference's very best scorers.
