Personally I think his game is more similar to Jevon Carter that was at West Virginia. Defense menace that is athletic/physical. Jamyron shot 34% from 3 in eybl. And was also one of the most efficient scorers in eybl

Jevon Carter is a good comp. I was thinking he was some of the classic, tough as nails, score first Kansas State guards. Guys like Rodney MacGruder and Barry Brown.

My only concern reading his scouting report is that it lists his main weaknesses as his jumper and running an offense. These are the main problems we've had with MB teams up to this point. A roster full of athletic combo guards who are more all-around types and nobody filling the specific roles of point or 3 point specialist.

But that's down the road, he could turn out to be a fantastic player, I'm more focused on this year right now.

He was the starting PG on the team that won Peach Jam, the most prolific AAU tourney out there, this summer. He facilitated the ball to two other five stars guards, and a four star forward. All while scoring 15 points a game with a 4/1 assist to turnover ratio. I think he has proven he can run an offense. He also shot 34% from 3 during peach jam and a bunch of D1 level opponents.

Looks like a solid prospect. Body looks college ready. At 6'1, you wonder what his ceiling can be but his floor looks good. We usually will live in the top 50-150 range on players.

Ooof on Boone not starting. I don't see that as a good sign considering how much of his game appears to be mental, or rather, affected by what is going on in his head.
It's just a projection, and I could see the starter varying game to game between those two depending on the matchups.

Agreed, just a lazy projection. I’d guess Boone and Caleb Asberry starts.

Rothstein is pretty tied in nationally. I'm not sure about Boone starting next to Cisse though. Smith isn't the perfect fit but he is a slightly better fit.

We know AA, Bryce and Cisse are likely starters. I feel like Boone and Smith are our next best players but the transfers we don't know much about, considering the level they are coming from. We just don't know what will translate for them.

Rothstein had none of our transfers on the top 10 impact transfers or under the radar transfers. So he doesn't think any of our 3 transfers are in the top 20 transfers in the league.

I don’t think Boone is going to start tbh. I think it’s Smith at the 4 (and Asberry at the 1).

With Asberry, are you basing that off any information or your observations of their highlight films? I really don't know what to think with any of the transfers.

That High Point transfer is legit. Posted before but my buddy is HPUs volleyball coach. He saw the young man daily at their gym. And he was coached by Tubby Smith. Could be a surprise for us

I have some concern about Wright's size and he didn't look overall athletic on the film I saw. It does appear he can make an open 3. Not sure if he's a true PG. He speed looked alright. Didn't see much playmaking on his highlights. Never know until they are in the uniform. Could be just what we need.

No actual intel, just reviews I read online about him when ppl were ranking the available transfers. His numbers are impressive though and he faced stronger competition in the Sunbelt than High Point did

Asberry does look more athletic and has some length for his height. At least that's what it appears when just seeing the highlights. None of our transfers seemed like great 2pt finishers despite good 3pt percentages. Wright was like 41%, Asberry 43%, and Harrison 45% were there overall FG %. But we might not ask them to give us hard 2's. Hard 2's should be AA, Bryce, and Kalib. Those are our guys who can get 1on1 baskets facing a shot clock or tough situation.
