NBA Comparison: Zabian Dowdell

Strengths:
Jeremy is deceptively quick and athletic ... Noticeably has a quick first step ... Has nice touch around basket, he's very crafty with the ball, excellent at changing direction ... He sees a lane and takes it, and he's not afraid to get fouled ... Can adjust his body and shot in mid air, absorbs contact well ... Uses on-ball screens very well with an ability to explode to the hoop, solid handle, above average crossover and shows the ability to split double teams with ease ... Can get in the paint and make plays for others ... Plays solid off-ball defense, ability to see man and ball ... Great awareness and reaction time ... Very effective in transition ... Good lateral movement when playing man to man perimeter defense and high awareness when playing help defense ... Has decent strength with long, solidly built arms ... Works hard at his game ... Has shown the ability to step up in big games and make clutch plays (hit a game winner to open the season) ...

Weakness: Lacks a true position ... Is not a natural playmaker but plays the position out of necessity at times for Harvard ... Not a true point guard, and plays off the ball more effectively and often ... His dribble is too high making it easy for opponents to strip the ball away ... More of a SF in a 6-4 body ... Doesn't seem to have much of a mid-range game, has ability to shoot the 3 but definitely not a strength ... Not a pure shooter ... Does not seem confident at all when taking a jump shot, passes on wide open shots at times which he won't be able to do at the next level ... Really needs to develop a pull-up or step back jumper, also has an unorthodox form on his shot ... His ISO skills are just average despite a quick first step ... Much more effective spotting up than creating shots off the dribble ... When fatigued tends to force the issue, turn the ball over, and take questionable shots ... Plays in a very weak conference so his lack of competition and experience on a big stage is a hurdle ...

Notes: As one of the most successful Asian Americans in Division 1 basketball history, there is a lot of interest in him ... Has been featured in Time magazine and numerous publications ... Intrigue from NBA teams could become enhanced due to his marketing capacity ... And scouts don't rule out the possibility that he will be drafted ...
