One of the most impressive scorers seen at the adidas Nations, Solomon Poole (#28 Scout, #9 Rivals, #22 ESPN) is an undersized combo guard with terrific athleticism. Showing a quick first step, great speed in the open court and the ability to rise up and finish plays well above the rim in traffic, Poole has a major wow factor to his game.
More than just an athlete, Poole is also a versatile scorer who can put the ball in the rim in a variety of different ways. A terror in transition and a capable shot-creator off the dribble in the half-court, Poole gets to the basket effectively where he finishes with floaters and little pull-ups in the lane. He can make shots with range out past the 3-point line, both with his feet set and especially off the dribble, showing no hesitation at all rising up and firing away regardless of the situation.
More of a combo guard than a real facilitator, Poole is a bit wild at times with his decision making, showing limited court vision. This is a pretty significant knock considering that he's already undersized for a point guard, and is something he'll likely need to address.
Defensively, Poole can be an absolute pest with his quickness and ability to put pressure on opponents, and in turn comes up with plenty of loose balls in the passing lanes. He's a bit undersized regardless of which guard position he's defending, though, so maximizing his intensity on this end of the floor will likely be key for him.
