NCAA Tournament NBA Draft Prospect TV Schedule: Friday
March 17, 2016

Richardson is probably the most immediate prospect of the group, a well-built and athletic wing who loves to operate in one on one situations, but has seen mixed results when doing so in his debut campaign. Much older than your average freshman at 20 years old, Richardson can do quite a few things well, but has struggled with his decision making and efficiency this season, as does not possess a great feel for the game.

Malachi Richardson is a little undersized for a shooting guard at 6-3 in shoes, but his 7-0 wingspan more than makes up for that.

High School Class of 2015 Scouting Reports
September 6, 2013

Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: 247: #32, ESPN: #11, Scout: #19, Rivals: #19

Strengths:
-Decent size for a shooting guard at 6-5 in shoes
-Excellent frame that will fill out nicely
-Very long arms. 6-10 wingspan
-Nice scoring instincts
-Good in transition
-Gets to the free throw line at a good rate
-Can get hot from outside. Capable of knocking down shots in rhythm with feet set or off the dribble
-Very good lateral quickness

Weaknesses
-Good, not great athlete. More smooth than explosive
-A little undersized for a small forward
-Not a great ball-handler in the half-court. Rarely gets all the way to the basket and finishes
-No left hand
-Shooting mechanics are unorthodox. Has a very rigid stroke. Sometimes just flings ball at the rim. Other times shot looks very good. Needs to become more consistent with his stroke
-Relies very heavily on outside shot. Over half of field goal attempts came from beyond arc at EYBL. Made just 35% of attempts
-Much older than his class. Will turn 18 midway through his high school junior season

Outlook: Streaky scorer who can get hot quickly and knock down a barrage of outside shots. Talented prospect missing a good amount of polish and experience. Reclassified and is now much older than most of his classmates. Will turn 20 during his freshman season in college.
