Gerald Liddell, 6-6.5”, SF, Cibolo, TX, Class of 2018

Mike Schmitz

Strengths
-Impressive measurements for a wing at 6' 6.5” with a 6' 11.5” wingspan. Frame has plenty of room to add weight.
-Very fluid. Gets up and down with long strides. Good first step in the half court.
-Shows some potential as a ball handler. Was able to play at different speeds from time to time. Skilled handle for his age and size.
-Fundamentally sound shooting mechanics. Didn't show off much range or consistency in game settings but there's certainly something to work with.
-Uses his length to make plays on the defensive end.

Weaknesses
-Rail thin at 172 pounds. Very skinny legs. Lack of strength limited his ability to get to the rim and finish.
-Overpowered at times on the defensive end and the glass
-Didn't show a great feel for the game. Got sped up vs pressure and forced up wild shots, particularly off the dribble in the mid-range area
-Jumper has potential but he didn't take many or show the most natural touch
-Fluid but not an elite leaper

Outlook: At 16 years old with impressive size and length, Liddell is certainly an interesting prospect to track moving forward. He's still not quite there in terms of producing versus high-level defenders and thinking the game quickly, but he showcased some potential as a ball handler, shooter and defender, and is certainly someone to monitor in the 2018 class.
