Unable to lead his team to much of anything in the wins column, this was a fairly disappointing tournament for recent-Louisville commit Jared Swopshire (#88 Scout, #149 Rivals). Regardless, it’s not hard to see what the recruiting services (and the big college programs) see in him. Swopshire is a 6-7 wing player with a great frame, long arms, and solid athletic ability—looking the role of stud prospect even if he doesn’t always play like one. He’s a clear-cut perimeter player, showing a nice looking jump-shot on the catch and shoot or even pulling up off the dribble, and the ability to put the ball on the floor a little and finish around the basket. Swopshire is still a pretty raw player, somewhat soft in his approach to the game, who looked pretty comfortable just fitting in even when his team needed him to do a little more than that. His ball-handling skills could use some work, and putting weight on his frame should clearly be a priority for him. He also wasn’t really felt that much defensively or on the glass in the games we saw considering his physical tools. Potential seems to be the operative word here, so we’ll have to wait and see how he develops.
