Jahvon Blair, 6-4 PG/SG, Brampton, 1998

Strengths
-Solid size for a combo guard at 6-4. Still thin but has added eight pounds since the 2015 BioSteel game.
-Can play on or off the ball.
-Went off for 31 points leading his team to a comeback victory in the BioSteel game.
-Shot-maker, especially off the catch. Low release point but gets good rotation. Nice touch.
-Operates at different speeds. Has some creativity as a ball handler. Uses stutter steps. Will use Rondo-esque fakes.
-Nice touch on floaters.
-Very capable playmaker. Has some vision.
-Willing to mix it up on the glass.
-Plays with a lot of confidence.

Weaknesses
-Lacks length with a 6' 4” wingspan.
-Average frame – 176 pounds at 18 years old.
-Not the most explosive athlete. Relies more on change of speeds and deception. Doesn't always turn the corner. Strides aren't overly long. Relies on tough floaters.
-Has a tendency to get a bit wild. Will drive into traffic and throw up off balance layups. Can improve his decision making.
-Streaky shooter with a low release point. More comfortable off the catch than the dribble at this stage. Shoots a set shot.
-Very left hand (his strong hand) dominant.
-More of a scorer than a playmaker at this stage.
-Doesn't have much defensive potential with his lack of length and frame. Can improve his focus and intensity on that end.
-A year old for his class – will turn 20 at the end of his freshman season in college.

Outlook Blair exploded in the BooSteel Game leading his team to victory while helping his stock as a college prospect in the process. The 6-4 uncommitted guard can really fill it up, mixing in jumpers and floaters, while showing potential as a playmaker. His long-term upside is a bit limited given his lack of length and elite explosiveness, but he figures to be a very productive college player who could develop into an NBA prospect in time.
