After failing to qualify academically for the NCAA this season, Chris Braswell (unranked Scout, #78 Rivals) is back for another year at Hargrave Military Academy. His body language seems improved from what it was a year ago, and his effort level and approach to the game in general are both more consistent. With a very strong 6'8 body, while being a year or two older than the rest of his class, Braswell should be able to make an immediate impact for Charlotte (after decommitting from Georgetown) next season in a workmanlike role.
Here he did most of his damage in the painted area, scoring quite a few baskets in transition or off passes cutting through the lane, though showed some flashes of post moves as well, with hook shots and turnaround jumpers. His post awareness isn't great, sometimes fading away when he'd create a better shot attempt going strong to the basket, but with his good hands and positioning, he gets the job done. He showed some nice flashes on the defensive end as well, helping on the weak side, drawing a charge, and using his body in the paint and on the glass, though he did appear to just go through the motions at times.
