Amile Jefferson: What Prized Recruit Will Bring to Table as Freshman
The jury is still out as to where Amile Jefferson will go to school, but not on what he has to offer whichever school he chooses.
Jefferson is going to be an elite player right away. He will start no matter where he decides to go to school. Scout has him ranked as the 25th best recruit in the nation.
He is a 6'7", 190 pound power forward. He is a fluid and natural athlete. Here is a glimpse at the kind of game he will bring to college basketball next season.
Jefferson is still working on his jump shot; it is inconsistent at best at the moment. When he is draining that shot, he is absolutely unstoppable. That would also allow him to play some minutes at small forward—where he would be a matchup nightmare.
Either way, he is going to get his points. He has decent handles for someone his size and will be able to take defenders off the dribble.
Still, it is in the post where he will do most of his damage. He has wonderful touch around the rim, and good footwork to get there.
He can also finish with both hands. Expect Jefferson to average 15-20 points a game next year.
Jefferson is also a solid offensive rebounder, with good instincts for the ball.
Jefferson is long and athletic. This makes him an excellent shot blocker.
To go along with his athletic ability, he has great instincts. This makes him an excellent help defender, and he will help seal off the lane.
Where he will struggle on defense is in the post against stronger power forwards. He needs to bulk up, as stronger opponents will be able to muscle him in the post.
He will be able to make up for some of this with his athleticism, but could be a target for isolations against strong, talented big men.
His lack of bulk will also hurt him on the defensive boards, but he should still be able to pull in between eight or nine rebounds a game.
