ITH Scouting Notes: Skilled playmaker that can excel at the point or on the wing. Excellent passer, especially in transition. Streaky shooter, but possesses the ability to go on a scoring barrage from the perimeter. Solid ball handler and defender. Very good at attacking off the dribble, but isn’t yet explosive at blowing past defenders. High basketball IQ for a freshman with a knack for making big plays.
