adidas Nations Scouting Reports Part 2
August 14, 2014
Dennis Smith, Point Guard, Trinity Christian (NC), Class of 2016

Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: Scout #6, 24/7 #8, Rivals #5, ESPN #9

Strengths:
-Good size
-Strong frame
-Tremendous athlete
-Can play above the rim with ease
-Changes speeds
-Great quickness in open court
-Shows sparks of intriguing court vision
-Makes some extremely creative passes at times
-Solid shooting mechanics. Makes 3-pointers with his feet set and off the dribble
-Only 16 years old

Weaknesses:
-Ball-handling skills haven't caught up to athleticism yet
-Likes to float out onto perimeter.
-some really wild passes
-Looks somewhat apathetic at times, like he's playing at half-speed. Doesn't show any emotion. Could be more vocal on the court
-Shot selection isn't great
-Still working on the consistency of his outside shot

Outlook: Smooth, fluid athlete with a dynamite first step and ability to operate at different speeds. Has another gear he can get to which makes him a terror to stay in front of in transition. Doesn't seem to know how good he is at this stage. Looks like he's going through the motions at times, but is extremely impressive when he's fully engaged and decides to turn it on. Very young and still has a lot of room to continue to grow. Extremely talented.

2014 adidas EuroCamp: Day Three
June 9, 2014
Dennis Smith led the Americans with 14 points. A consensus top-20 recruit in the high school class of 2016, Smith got off to a slow start over the first two days, appearing a bit apathetic, making some poor decisions when attacking the rim, and struggling to handle pressure, but settled in nicely today. Competing with the sense of urgency he seemed to lack early on, Smith showed the ability to create space and probe the paint by changing speeds and being aggressive.

The North Carolina native has a nice frame for a lead guard standing 6'2 with a 6'3 wingspan to go along with solid athleticism. He needs to continue getting stronger, but has some nice tools to work with physically. A capable shooter with nice mechanics who can create for others when he's dialed in, it was nice to see Smith turn things around on day three. His decision-making still leaved something to be desired at times, but Smith consistently utilized the quickness and passing ability that have made him such a highly touted recruit. One of the youngest players on this team, Smith showed some flashes today, and has been one of the most productive players in the inaugural season of adidas's AAU circuit, the Gauntlet averaging 18.5 points and 5.7 assist per-game for Team Loaded NC.
