NBA Comparison: Steve Logan

Strengths: Strong combo guard with excellent scoring ability ... Has good length at 6'3.25" with a wingspan of 6'7.5"... Super efficient, shooting 51.7% from the field ... Good shot selection, rarely forces the issue... Really developed his shooting ability at school... In senior season, averaged 2.0 made threes per game at a 42% clip ... Very skilled in spot up shooting situations... Can drive to the basket well with either hand ... Crafty ball-control combined with overwhelming strength makes him hard to keep out of the lane... Finds unique ways to finish at the rim ... Very aggressive in transition, never shying away from contact ... Due to physicality, spends a lot of time at the free throw line (6.7 FTA per game) ... Impressive assist/turnover ratio (2.16 assists per turnover) and good overall playmaking ability suggest he can play the point guard position at the next level... Very unselfish... Makes an effort defensively... With his long arms and good anticipation, he forces a good amount of steals (1.7 SPG)... Clutch performer... Smart kid who plays very hard...

Weaknesses: Not a true point guard ... Had to be ball-dominant at Hofstra and ball-dominant scoring role-players are a dime a dozen in the NBA ... Exposed when isolated defensively ... Is prone to getting beat off the dribble ... Average athleticism hurts his defensive potential at the next level ... It's hard to see his physical/bullying style being nearly as effective in the NBA ... Redshirted his true freshman year, so he's a year older than the rest of his class ... Played in the Colonial Athletic Association (mid-major) for four years, so he hasn't had many opportunities to prove himself against great competition ... 2/3rd of his games came against teams outside the RPI top 100, so it's difficult to get too excited about his numbers considering his teammates deferred to him and he was the primary option at all times offensively. How he would fit into a better team and in a team concept is debatable ... Had a standing reach of just 8'0.5 which is the same as Jimmer Fredette who measaured just over 6' feet barefoot ...

Overall: Players like Jenkins are not rare in the NBA but can be very valuable... He has the tools to transition into a solid drive and dish point guard or spot-up shooting guard if he finds a team that is willing to give him a chance in their rotation ...
