High School Class of 2014 Scouting Reports, Part Three- the Wings
September 5, 2013
Jonathan Givony

Recruiting Rankings: 247: #NR, ESPN: #NR, Scout: #NR, Rivals: #NR

Strengths:
-Very good size for a small forward, to go along with a strong frame
-Solid athlete
-Operates as somewhat of a point forward. Handles the ball in transition, brings ball up the court, creates offense for himself and others
-Shows good potential on the pick and roll
-Creative passer. Passes the ball into the post. Finds teammates in drive and dish situations
-Can make catch and shoot 3-pointers
-Will occasionally make an off the dribble jumper
-Has very good potential defensively with his size and length. Very competitive player

Weaknesses:
-Not an efficient player at this point. 2-point percentage has been poor in every setting he's competed at
-Average finisher around the basket
-Shot-selection, decision making needs work. Needs to improve fundamentals, experience
-Shoots the ball differently every time. Not a consistent outside shooter
-Needs to improve ball-handling skills in half-court. Too turnover prone

Outlook: Big wing with a solid feel for the game. Operated as a guard at the adidas Nations and really excelled, leading team to a third place finish. Struggled in more organized settings at the U19 World Championship, but looks to have much better potential at the college level than the high school recruiting services are giving him credit for. Still raw, but has some really intriguing attributes that could develop into impressive strengths with solid coaching.
