High School Class of 2013: Elite Prospect Scouting Reports, Part Two
September 12, 2012
Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: ESPN: #20, Scout: #15, Rivals: #20, 24/7: #21

Strengths:
-Good size for a wing
-Frame should fill out nicely in time
-Good athlete
-Talented one on one player
-Can create his own shot with either hand
-Solid mid-range game
-Finishes well around the basket, sometimes in acrobatic fashion
-Excellent shooting mechanics
-Can make shots off the dribble or with feet set
-Elevates well creating separation from defender to get pull-up jumper off

Weaknesses:
-Average wingspan (measured 6-7)
-Lacks strength. Only 179 pounds. Will take time for body to fill out
-Needs to improve polish, experience-level in half-court
-Average ball-handler
-Can't consistently create good shots around the basket in the half-court at a high rate yet
-Settles for bad shots at times
-Outside shot prone to streakiness

Outlook:
Talented wing with excellent scoring instincts. Still a bit rough around the edges, but that's to be expected considering his age. Has the potential to develop into an extremely interesting prospect long term.

Highlights:
