I watched a few of his games from the EYBL last year. He obviously shoots the crap out of the ball but I wanted to see if he could defend. City Rocks had Boeheim’s kid on their team and naturally…a 2-3 zone.
One thing that I noticed while he played was that the other team tried to take him away and it didn’t matter. He is that good of a shooter with a really quick release that makes it really hard to cover him completely. He seemed like a good enough passer and was willing to make the extra pass instead of jacking any chance he could. All of this, while playing a year up in the 17u division.
The question mark when it comes to college is, what happens when a 6’6 long and athletic player covers him? It’s a question that I can’t answer it but I have to think he saw that a little bit with a few of the teams in the EYBL. And if he didn’t see it last year, he’ll see it this year.
