Jared Harper

Position: PG From: Auburn Class/YOB: Junior
Height: 5’11 Weight: 175 Wingspan: N/A

Strengths:

  • Fast open court player that does a nice job changing pace. He improved his patience in pick-and-rolls and it allowed him to really make the most of his quick first step to get to the rim
  • Improved three-point shooter. He has always been a threat to pull-up when defenders sag off, but this year he was effective in spot-ups as well. With his size, outside shooting is going to be key
  • Does a nice job of drawing help defenders off of penetration and finding bigs and shooters
  • About as tough of a point guard as there is in the class

Weaknesses:

  • Size is always going to expose him to post-ups and defensive isolations
  • Can struggle finishing at the rim. He’s a good athlete who is fearless but SEC size gave him problems in the paint.
  • Doesn’t do a whole lot of shooting from the mid-range. If he wants to keep defenses honest, he will need to work on creating space and hitting those 10-18 foot shots
  • His pick-and-roll passing is going to need to be refined with longer, more athletic defenders affecting his vision
