SCOUTING

 College: 

Bethesda

 An athletic rugged competitor who has been described as 'tough as nails' by opposing coaches.  Has an excellent ability to score at high levels.  Plays hard at both ends as seen by the fact that he has been named both all-league and all defensive selections.  Can shut down opposing backcourt players if needed or raise his offensive game if needed.  Sees the floor well and has spent time at all backcourt positions but is best going between the 2-3 spots.  Shoots it well with good range and is quick getting up and down the floor.  No weaknesses in his game.  Is a great leader on the floor and almost acts as an on-court coach.  Even has been called up to give some minutes at the PG in a pinch. Will finish with highlight dunks at the rim and is a threat to challenge any shot blocker. Great team player and a real pleasure to play alongside.
