PHYSICAL AND MENTAL
Has ton of fun playing...receptive to coaching...great composure for freshman...lost a lot of weight and looks good...not superquick but effective...great hands...doesn't have great lift...his emotion is infectious

BALL SKILLS
Not bad passer, but right now not looking to pass much...handle shaky in open floor but in past looked like he could handle adequately

OFFENSE
All inside...sits down in post very well with arms out...good at feeling where defense is, going other way...active without ball...gets in great spots for easy baskets

REBOUNDING
Aggressive on both ends of floor...not superathletic but gets rebounds on positioning...will work to box out...goes to offensive glass hard

DEFENSE
Physical vs. post up...not really shot blocker...good footwork and sees weakside well...slow on help defensively, but that will come...will work to front and bump cutters

KNOWLEDGE
Great feel for the game...good composure...very hard worker with great attitude...makes good decisions...big-game player

STRENGTHS
Crafty, knows how to get ball in hoop...tough kid...finishes around hole...because he's not superathletic, smart at getting shots...doesn't try to do anything he can't do

WEAKNESSES
Needs to run floor better...needs to develop outside/in-between game must work on handle...can he keep weight down?
