I'm a terrible talent evaluator (no idea what to look for), but here are my meaningless 2 cents:

Looks pretty athletic. Definitely a solid player, good at creating for others and occasionally for himself. Nice finishes around the basket.

It says in the video description that he can hit a jump shot, but I don't think he even shot one in the whole video. May just be a coincidence though.

If he was to come into this state listening to that kind of crap, let him stay in Canada.

Game was from last February, his junior year, would like to see film from his senior year (just became eligible recently).

He had about 7-8 assists ATLEAST, in the highlights of that game, so good to see a HS kid that can get that many assists in a single HS game.

The fact UCLA has offered and programs like Arizona have been calling makes me think he's probably pretty good. His coach also knows a thing or two about good PGs, he's played with and coached a few good ones.

Based on the video, he is not a difference maker. He has average ability at best. He can not dunk. He has average quickness and shooting ability. I say pass.

don't care unless the guy can SHOOT the ball and it goes in the BASKET. It is painfully obvious the only thing we need and lack is pure shooters. PERIOD. If he can shoot, go get em CCM!

Idk about all that. I don't think he would get the looks that's he's getting if he was average. I think we need more videos before you can make that judgement. He gets to the lane and makes damn good passes. I'm not saying that he should automatically sign with us but the looks from schools speak for its self.

If he had average ability why would schools like UCLA and Arizona be after him?

Since when does a PG need to dunk to be effective?

Average shooting ability? What in the video supports that statement?

He can leave the dunking to MCCrae and Hubbs for all I care. Give me a PG with a 4 to 1 Ast to Turnover ratio and the ability to read a defense and get the ball where it needs to be and I am satisfied.

People are too caught up in seeing UK and other top schools have uber athletic PG's and think that all PG's are like that. Do I want that yes to a degree but like you said give me a heady PG that limits turnovers and puts people in the right position and gets them to score and I'm all for it.

If he can get the ball past mid court offer, its heck when you cant get past midcourt, when the game is on the line, with a good point guard we are looking at this team with at least 3 more wins.
