NBA Comparison: Jason Smith

Aran Smith - 1/21/2008

Strengths: Post forward with excellent length and versatility ... Though he's already a senior, he has a developing skill set and shows a lot of upside ... A late bloomer who despite playing at a mid-major has lottery pick potential ... Terrific foot speed allows him to hold his own on the perimeter on both ends of the floor ... Has great fluidity and athleticism and inside/outside skills ... Good touch on his shot with consistent range out to 12-15 feet ... Has some polished post moves including a nice jump hook ... A marvelous passer for a 6-10 guy with vision and good decision making. Has a 1:1 a/to ratio, which for a post player is excellent ... Rebounds the ball well ... Quality defender. A factor as a shot blocker with his quick leaping ability and timing ... Can handle the ball in both the half court and full court ... Has the ability to face the basket and take bigger players off the dribble ... High character guy. Plays with a high motor, great attitude and eager to improve. ... Hard worker who has shown steady improvement throughout his college career ... Averaging 20 and 10 for his second consecutive season in college ...

Weaknesses: Needs to become stronger and tougher inside ... He has the frame and ability to play inside but will need to improve on those skills for the next level ... He'll need to improve on his leg strength to better fight for positioning ... Must become better at using positioning for rebounds instead of relying strictly on his athleticism over less athletic, smaller players ... Playing in a lower level conference makes him a tougher sell. Level of competition has not been great playing at Rider in the MAAC, he'll have a bigger adjustment in level of competition, thought he has performed very well when facing top level competition ... His free throw shooting while solid over his career has trailed off (55%) as a senior ...
