Strengths:
-Decent size for a point guard at 6-2
-Strong ball-handler. Can operate at different speeds
-Excellent potential on the pick and roll. Usually makes the right reads.
-Very good outside shooter. Can make shots with range both with feet set and off the dribble.
-Tosses in floaters with impressive touch.
-Played up a year at this competition

Weaknesses:
-Has a narrow frame with average length
-More comfortable shooting jumpers than creating efficient offense inside the arc. Took nearly 50% more 3-pointers than 2-pointers.
-Hit just 44% of his 2-point attempts at U18s. Career 39% 2P% in games we have logged
-Tends to avoid contact inside the paint and settle for difficult floaters
-Barely gets to free throw line (16 FTAs in 255 minutes at U18s)
-Average defender. Gets beat off the dribble in half-court. Struggles to get through screens.

Outlook: Young, talented point guard who was among the most productive players at his position at the U18s, despite being a year younger than most of the competition. Shows nice potential in different areas if he can continue to fill out his frame and get a little tougher defensively. Reportedly heading to New Hampton Prep in New Hampshire. Will get recruited at the high major level.
