Mike Schmitz

Strengths
-More than just a shooter.
-Excellent spot up shooter. Good mechanics, quick release. Can shoot on the move as well (coming off of screens).
-Not an explosive athlete but is very smooth.
-Can handle a little bit.
-High IQ on both ends.

Weaknesses

Outlook Sharp-shooting guard with potential to develop into more of a playmaker due to his above average handle, basketball IQ and passing instincts. Kennard figures to be a contributor at the college level right away due to his shooting ability and effort level. Kennard may not have a ton of NBA potential due to his average physical tools, but expect Kennard to be a solid collegiate player.
