-Good size for a shooting guard a 6-6 ½ with shoes
-Very long arms. 6-10 wingspan
-Versatile player who can do a little bit of everything
-Excellent feel for the game. Sees the floor and does a great job of getting teammates involved. Averaged 4.2 assists per-40 in 23 Nike EYBL games. Creative player with very good vision
-Good athlete. Can play above the rim with ease. Quick first step
-Gets to the free throw line at an excellent rate
-Very good lateral quickness. Gets in the passing lanes regularly thanks to length, quickness and anticipation skills
-Possesses a very frail frame. Only weighed 182 pounds this past July, up from 181 pounds the year before. Can he add more weight?
-Average ball-handler in the half-court. Struggles to get by opponents if forced to execute more complicated sequences than simply blowing past his man
-Not a great finisher around the basket. Lacks the strength to take hits around the rim and finish
-Possesses inconsistent shooting mechanics. Elbow flails out badly on catch and shoot attempts. Brings ball around the world, slows down his release
-Effort defensively is inconsistent
Outlook: Highly rated wing prospect going to North Carolina. Was very highly regarded early on in his high school career, but has fallen off somewhat as his body hasn't developed and his outside shot remains extremely inconsistent. Still a fairly talented and versatile player. [Read Full Article] High School Class of 2014: Elite Prospect Scouting Reports, Part One September 27, 2012 Jonathan Givony
