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

Recruiting Rankings: ESPN: #17, Scout: #29, Rivals: #51, 24/7: #46

Strengths:
-6-9 in shoes with a 7-0 wingspan
-Basketball IQ is off the charts
-Operates like a point-center out on the floor
-Tremendous passer for his position
-Has the offense run through him in the high post and finds the open man cutting to the basket every single time
-Too strong for opposing big men to keep outside of the paint
-Can score in the low post
-Has phenomenal hands
-Extremely soft touch around the basket
-Can knock down an outside jumper with nice form
-Shoots a very high percentage from the floor
-Appears to be a very positive teammate. Always cheering. First one off the bench
-Has the length and timing to block an occasional shot
-Terrific rebounder

Weaknesses:
-Weighed in at nearly 300 pounds at the LeBron James Skills Academy
-Conditioning a significant factor. Gets winded easily
-Doesn't run the floor incredibly well
-Lacks great athleticism. Plays completely below the rim guy
-Undersized center at 6-9 1/2
-Doesn't always dominate offensively the way that he should. Appears to be a bit bored playing at this level
-Tends to coast a bit, hanging out on the perimeter and letting the defense off easy
-Should focus on becoming a better low-post presence: improving his footwork, left hand and counter moves

Outlook: Tremendously skilled and smart big man who is mature beyond his years. Needs to shed at least 25 pounds of baby fat before headed to college, and not settle for playing so much on the perimeter, but it's impossible to find big men with his understanding of the game. If he has the internal motivation necessary to get his weight down and utilize his strong frame more regularly, he will have a great pro career.
