NBA Comparison: Terence Morris

Strengths: 6’8 athletic forward … Good length with a 6’10 wingspan … Good athleticism and agility. Very fluid and mobile. Gets off the ground well and has a quick second jump … Good energy and consistent effort. Attacks the rim with aggression and will throw down dunks in traffic … Solid foundation as a jump shooter and face up offensive threat. Can hit shots from midrange and 3PT range, shows potential as an inside-out offensive threat. Hits shots off the dribble on occasions … Averaged 16.5 points per game at 55.3% FG% over the Nike EYBL in 2018 … Solid handle and slashing ability. Can drive off the dribble and effectively uses crossover … Very good rebounder on both ends. Finished 3rd over the Nike EYBL with 9.4 rebounds per game in 2018 and led the league in offensive rebounds with 3.5 per game. Finished 5th with 6.3 rebounds per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018. Can take defensive rebounds to the other end of the floor … Good versatility as a defender, light on his feet and rotates well. Defends the post well and can switch onto the perimeter. Good timing and elevation as a shot blocker. Finished 3rd over the Nike EYBL with 2.4 blocks per game in 2018. Averaged a block per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 …

Weaknesses: Shooting range stretches out to the three-point line but isn’t very consistent right now. Shot 32% 3PT% over the Nike EYBL in 2018. Shot 27.3% 3PT% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018 … Has room to improve as a free throw shooter. Shot 54.4% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2018 … Can over-dribble in isolation situations. Shot selection can improve as he dribbles into contested shots at times. Can be out of control on his drives, attacking without a plan and getting stuck or forcing up a contested/off-balanced layup. Can work on protecting the ball better in traffic … Can expand post-game and technique …

Outlook: Oregon freshman … Played in the 2019 Jordan Brand Classic … Played his senior year at Oak Ridge …
