Bruce Brown

Position: SG                        College: Miami (FL)         Class/YOB: Sophomore

Height: 6’5                          Weight: 195                    Wingspan: 6’9

 

Strengths:

  • Passing instincts are there. Was one of the best playmakers in the ACC as an off-guard.
  • Explosive athlete. Makes his presence felt on both ends using his natural physical gifts. Whether that be for rebounding, defending guards, or protecting the rim.
  • Elite-level rebounder. Makes a concerted effort to stick his nose in there and battle for rebounds.
  • Special defensive talent. Average size but long arms. He guards with energy and effort throughout the game. Terrific shot-blocker for a guard.
  • Gritty competitor. Doesn’t always show up on the stat sheet, but the impact comes from the relentlessness of his game. When shots aren’t falling, he always finds a way to add value in other areas.

Weaknesses:

  • Poor outside shooting. Was average as a freshman but really plummeted last year.
  • Injury issues. Missed portions of last year with a foot injury that is said to have healed.
  • Has height of a point guard but doesn’t really have the handling skills to run a team. Will he still be able to make an impact offensively without the ball in his hands?
