Mcdonald's All-American Week Player Evaluations and Interviews
April 5, 2010
Somewhat of a surprising selection to the McDonald's roster, Pinkston struggled to justify his inclusion over the course of the week, looking very much overmatched relative to much of the talent that was on display here in Columbus.



Already at a big disadvantage in terms of pure athleticism, Pinkston didn't do himself many favors by showing up severely out of shape, looking a good 20-25 pounds heavier than you might hope. He desperately looked to prove his value as a perimeter player, repeatedly bulldozing his way into the lane and forcing up bad shots, but not seeing very good results. Pinkston will likely need to start his career off in the post and slowly work his way out towards the wing, similar to the way players like P.J. Tucker and Mike Harris did.

When he wasn't busy trying to show off his small forward skills, Pinkston actually managed to impress with his strength, toughness and aggressiveness, traits that will surely be valued by Jay Wright at Villanova next year. He has a great nose for the ball and doesn't back down from contact, also showing the ability to operate somewhat effectively off the dribble taking his man off the bounce with his left hand.

Pinkston's natural talent level isn't up to par with most of the other players at this game, but if he's able to get in shape and is willing to be coached, he'll have a fine college career.
