NBA Comparison: Rodney Carney/James White

Aran Smith - 8/4/2007

Strengths: Track star type of freakish athleticism and leaping ability ... A slasher. Highlight waiting to happen ... Above average defender ... Has terrific length. Combine that with his quickness and he has the tools to be an outstanding defender ... A big senior season could vault him into the first round ... Shows a willingness to go inside. Solid rebounder ... Best utilized playing alongside a great lob passer as he can let the bunnies loose for ally oops ...

Weaknesses: Must develop better mental toughness and intensity ... Lacks offensive polish. Not a bigtime scorer, struggles to create for himself and lacks a great shot off the dribble ... Doesn't seem to have a great feel for the game, or the desire to truly maximize his tremendous physical gifts ... Scores best around the basket and on the break, his jumpshot lacks consistency, although it has shown recent improvement ... Shot selection is key ... Does not always seem to play to his abilities. Shows flashes of great potential but seems to have trouble sustaining it ... Needs to improve from the line where he shoots under 60% ... Added strength would be a big benefit as it would allow him to better use his great athleticism to finish drives to the basket. He seems to have the body type that will always be on the skinny side ... Most likely a role player for the NBA unless he shows a great deal of progress in his senior year.

Notes: Son of former NFL player (DB) Lionel Washington. Could be primed for a break out season as he will likely be asked to assume a bigger role in the team's offense in his senior season with a number of the Hokies' top players graduated (Gordon, Collins and Dowdell).
