DraftExpress: Chris McCullough is obviously a great athlete but is not showing much of a motor. Getting pushed around inside and not trying to fight back

DraftExpress: Chris McCullough has a little Perry Jones in him, for better or worse. Crazy talented. Jack of all trades, master of none. For now. #eybl

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

Recruiting Rankings: 247: #16, ESPN: #7, Scout: #16, Rivals: #13
Committed to Syracuse

Strengths:
-Solid frame that will fill out in time
-7-2 wingspan
-Extremely fluid and agile big man. Runs the floor well when motivated. Can play above the rim with ease
-Highly skilled for his size
-Possesses range out to the 3-point line. Can shoot with feet set or off the dribble
-Can put the ball on the floor and attack his man from the perimeter. Has a solid first step and the ability to finish smoothly off the glass with either hand
-Comes up with plenty of offensive rebounds thanks to length and agility
-Skilled enough to grab a rebound and take the ball coast to coast
-Has excellent agility on defensive. Moves his feet well. Has the lateral quickness needed to stay in front of power forwards on the perimeter
-Has the length, physical tools and instincts to make plenty of plays defensively. Comes up regularly with blocks, steals and rebounds

Weaknesses:
-Rarely looks like he's playing with maximum intensity. Goes through the motions in too many possessions. Coasts for long stretches
-Not always willing to compete inside the paint. Shies away from contact
-Not an efficient offensive player. Consistently settles for low-percentage shots from the perimeter
-Has very poor fundamentals on defense. Doesn't get into a stance. Gets backed down relentlessly. Gambles for steals. Needs to improve strength and toughness around the basket
-Doesn't box out on defense
-Body language is often poor

Outlook: Exceptionally gifted modern day power forward who drops impresses glimpses of potential, but also shows a multitude of highly concerning red flags. Does not play with a high motor and shows average toughness and fundamentals. Similar package of strengths and weaknesses as Perry Jones at the same stage.
