NBA Comparison: Craig Hodges

Aran Smith - 10/23/2007

Strengths: One of the top pure shooters in the college game ... Has the ability to spot up and shoot with tremendous range ... Also shows a solid ability to score off the bounce creating offense for himself against quality defenders ... Very competitive and clutch player ... An underrated athlete, can get up and dunk when the occasion arises, although he's never going to be confused with a physical freak ... His age is more of a negative than positive, but at 24 years of age, teams appreciate the fact that he's emotionally mature and more "NBA ready" than the average draftee ... Hard worker who keeps himself in tremendous physical condition (averaged 36 min per game as a junior) ... 88% free throw shooter is truly at an elite level ... Really hustles and fights for rebounds, leading the entire team at 6.3 rpg as a junior ...

Weaknesses: Size creates a big hurdle for him ... Strictly a 2-guard, he lacks any real point guard skills despite solid passing and ball handling ability ... At 6-2, it's hard to imagine him as more than a role shooter on the NBA level ... His size will obviously create match up problems at the 2-guard position as the average 6-6 SG on the NBA level will be able to exploit him shooting over him or posting him up ... He'll be 25 on draft day having gone on a 2 year Mormon Mission. While he's not seen as an athletic freak with physical attributes left to develop, his age suggests he has less upside left to tap ... At 175 pounds, he lacks a great NBA body, adding some strength would be a plus but it's unlikely he can add much at his age ...

Outlook: Carroll figures to become the Aggies all time leading scorer in his senior year ... Suffers playing the the WAC as his exposure and competition level is lacking. Some coaches and scouts feel he would get "JJ Redick type hype" if he played for a high profile program such as Duke ... Carroll's skill level gives him a great chance to have a career in professional basketball whether it be in the NBA as a role player or overseas ...
