Strengths: Stoglin is a 6’1 guard who excels putting up points in bunches…Led the ACC in scoring as a Soph., and can take the game in terms with his knack for scoring…The southpaw has a sweet jump shot and is not afraid to let it fly from deep…Has NBA range and nice overall shooting mechanics…Attempted more than 7 3-pointers a night last season, and converted nearly 40% of them…Is tough defend because he can make shots with his feet set but is really dangerous because he is very comfortable utilizing quick crossovers to get space, and then exploding into his shot almost instantly…Has potential with his mid-range shot, and is effective with 2-dribble pull-ups against hard closeouts…Good pick-and-roll scorer…Pretty effective getting to the lane when he slashes…Nice 1st step and quickness, and is a shifty player…Shows good body control and looks smooth operating off the bounce…Ball-handling ability is good, and uses it to get his favorite shots well…Likes to use tricky footwork such as Euro-steps and in-and-out moves in the lane… Has an array of scoop shots and reverse lay-ins he will use to finish amongst the trees, and flashes impressive finishing ability in spurts…Not bad in transition, and finishes best around the rim in these instances…Aggressive style offensively allows him to get to the foul line a good bit, and he isn’t bad when he gets there

Weaknesses: Below average physical tools at 6’1 185, and doesn’t have much in the way of length, athleticism or strength to compensate…At 6’1, teams will want Stoglin to be able to play time at PG, and he clearly is not a natural playmaker for others…Much more likely to hunt his own shot than he is to pass the ball…Played on a Maryland team with a dearth of shot-creators, but he still struggled to play unselfish basketball and boasted an extremely modest A:TO (1.9:2.2 as a Soph.)…Doesn’t have much experience as a PG, and spent the vast majority of his time off the ball in his 2 years in the ACC…Even though he is a big talent putting up points, he doesn’t go about doing so very efficiently, and takes a few too many bad shots every game…Bails out the defense with some of the shots he takes, even with his potential as a slasher…Struggled to finish around the hoop, and doesn’t have the explosive athleticism that most undersized scoring guards who find niches in the NBA have…Even though he does make impressive and tricky finishes sporadically, he forces wild shots a bit too…On D, Stoglin is not very good and that probably wouldnt change against the better athletes and physical specimens in the NBA…Shows lagging urgency and will let shooting slumps effect his effort defensively…Wont get many steals…Doesn’t offer much outside of his scoring ability…Character concerns loom over his head, Stoglin would’ve been suspended his Jr. season for failing too many drug tests at Maryland…Was benched for freelancing and selfish play last season, and never fully dialed in with the new coaching staff Maryland brought in, and will have to explain himself in the draft process about those things…Shows little leadership skills, a desirable trait in a possible lead guard

Overall: Stoglin likes to score; that’s his game….He’s an aggressive player who looks for his own shots….He is a one-trick pony who wasn’t efficient in his role as the only Maryland Terrapin who could create shots consistently…In fact, he monopolized it…He doesn’t pass much, doesn’t defend hard, wasn’t a floor leader….He just went out and looked for his own shots, often whether it was in the flow of Coach Turgeon’s offense or not…He’s enigmatic, and he has a lot of holes in his game, but he’s such a natural talent as a scorer that there will be interest in him…I just think teams should save the trouble of trying to develop him into a PG, and just let him be a sparkplug scorer if there are willing….Also, he's only 20 years old, there is plenty of basketball and time for him to grow up ahead for him ...
