High School Class of 2015 Scouting Reports
September 6, 2013


Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: 247: #1, ESPN: #2, Scout: #2, Rivals: #1

Strengths:
-Arguably the best scorer in all of high school basketball. Averaged 24 points in 28 minutes per game at the Nike EYBL, best in the league both per-game and per-minute, despite being a year or more younger than virtually everyone he played
-Extremely athletic. Has a great first step and is very explosive
-Excellent body control in the lane
-Can operate at different speeds
-Terrific ball-handler. Can create his own shot driving left or right
-Very good footwork on his drives. Stops and starts, has all kinds of moves and is extremely difficult to stay in front of
-Great in transition
-Doesn't have any issues driving right into the teeth of the defense. Takes hits at the rim and finishes. Extremely tough for a player his age (16) and weight (176 pounds)
-Gets to the free throw line at a great rate
-Creates excellent separation for his pull-up jumper. Can stop on a dime and elevate. Knows how to use his body to keep his defender off-balance
-Very reliable shooter with his feet set
-Strong rebounder for his position
-Can find the open man. Court vision is not terrible. Generates a decent amount of assists
-Only 16 years old. Won't turn 17 until February

Weaknesses
-Doesn't have great size or length for a shooting guard. Measured 6-4 in shoes with a 6-4 wingspan
-Somewhat of a one man show at the high school/AAU level. Shot-selection and decision making isn't great
-Made just 44% of his 2-point attempts at the EYBL. Reliance on difficult long 2-point attempts hurts his efficiency
-May struggle defensively against bigger, stronger shooting guards

Outlook: Scoring machine in the Monta Ellis mold. Has an amazing knack for putting the ball in the basket. Talent is off the charts. Does not look like a selfish player, but may be picking up bad habits in the shoot-first ask question later environment of AAU.
