Position: SG                        College: Creighton           Class/YOB: Creighton

Height: 6’4                          Weight: 200                      Wingspan: 6’11

 

Strengths:

  • Shutdown on-ball defender. Easily top 5 in the class as guarding ball-handlers. Is quick, has terrific hands, and has the strength to take contact.
  • Superior length for his height. Possesses a +7 wingspan that makes ball-handlers uncomfortable.
  • Reliable three-point shooter. Has been around 40% every year. Always has his feet set, ready to fire from deep.
  • Extra effort guy. Continues pursuing the basketball, no matter where it is on the court. Quintessential hustle player. Will dive for loose balls, pick up full court, all of that.

Weaknesses:

  • Undersized for a two guard but without the playmaking of a point guard. Teams may work him out at the point, but he is really a 3-and-D two.
  • Isolation and P&R offense. Has an average handle and doesn’t have great vision. Can slash for days, but don’t count on him being an offensive focal point.
  • Mid-range shooting isn’t used much. Tough to be a short guard that doesn’t score from mid-range.
