Jordan Usher, 6-5, Shooting Guard, Wheeler HS, 2017 Class
-Solid size for a shooting guard to go along with a very strong frame
-Very good athlete. Bouncy and explosive
-Fills lanes in transition and can finish around the basket
-Has good shooting mechanics and was able to knock down jumpers consistently at EuroCamp
-Impresses with his ability to knock down shots off the dribble. Creates separation and is very effective in the mid-range area
-Active and competitive player. Plays with a very high energy level on both ends of the floor
-Extremely wild player with a poor feel for the game
-Doesn't know what his limitations are. Was somewhat of a black hole in Treviso. Posted just one assist in 65 minutes, compared with 10 turnovers. Was looking to get a shot off any time he touched the ball.
-Needs to improve his ball-handling skills significantly. Dribbles into brick walls without a plan frequently. Heavily reliant on his pull-up game because of his inability to create space and find high percentage shots around the basket.
-Needs to learn how to channel his energy better. Fiery guy who lets his emotions get the best of him at times. Can look very immature with his reactions to plays.
-A year old for his class. Will turn 20 mid-way through his freshman year in college.
Outlook Shooting guard with very good scoring instincts. Intense, aggressive player who found a decent amount of success offensively in his three games in Treviso. Gave off somewhat of a selfish vibe at times. Has a ways to go to learn how to play and figure out how to utilize his talent and energy-level to fit into a team concept.
