Jordan Poole

Position: SG From: Michigan Class/YOB: Sophomore
Height: 6’5 Weight: 195 Wingspan: N/A

Strengths:

  • Gifted shot maker, especially from beyond the arc. He can make shots off the dribble from long-range, which will be important for a player who will have a role as a microwave
  • Good quickness and athleticism in space
  • Took nice steps as a defender this season. Has the length and lateral movement to be a reliable cog on that end. Plays the passing lanes well
  • Has projectable ball-handling ability. Didn’t do a ton of creating, but he showed flashes of one-on-one skill when given the space
  • A much better passer than he is credited for

Weaknesses:

  • Susceptible to turnovers when he’s forced to put the ball on the ground. Doesn’t always stay under control when going downhill
  • Shot selection is questionable at times. Takes a lot of deep threes early in the clock
  • Was not much of a threat inside the arc. As the best floor spacer on the team, he was in more spot-up roles than on-ball actions
  • Still shows youth with stretches where he isn’t actively involved in the game
