DraftExpress: Malachi Richardson had some moments for Team Final but was too streaky from outside. Ja'Quan Newton inside the paint but rarely finished.

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.
