NBA Comparison: Ron Mercer (less athletic)

Aran Smith - 9/25/2007

Strengths: Strong and athletic wing with ideal size to play the 2-guard position on the next level A talent, was a top 10 recruit coming out of high school in an extremely deep class His outside shooting has shown solid improvement (though he attempted less from beyond the arc) Very good rebounder. (6.0 rpg as a junior) Very strong physically, he is tough to contain when he crashes the glass Hes nearly a year young for his grade, giving his potential some added intrigue

Weaknesses: Has failed to live up to expectations three years into his college career Doesnt show a great deal of emotion. Appears to play lackadaisical causing critics to question his passion for the game Played better as a sophomore than a junior as his scoring average dipped from 15.0 to 11.3 ppg Hes physically superior to nearly every opponent he faces, yet he seems to have trouble capitalizing on it Decision making and skills have not developed as expected His ball handling and passing skills are just average Must develop his mid-range game Defensively he loses focus and lacks intensity Work ethic and conditioning are not where they need to be Needs to improve from the line where he shot just 61% as a senior Missed a number of games in his junior year due to injury, hell need to show that injury problems arent a recurring problem for him
