Theo Pinson is a versatile wing who uses his explosiveness to dominate games from the perimeter. He is a skilled slasher with a lightning-fast first step. In the last year, Pinson has added a nice jumper out to the arc to his already chock-full arsenal of weapons.
ESPN’s senior national recruiting analyst, Dave Telep, said this after Pinson announced his decision to go to North Carolina next year:
In Pinson, North Carolina landed a versatile small forward capable of guarding any perimeter position, creating for himself and others off the dribble to the lineup.
CBSSports.com’s Jeff Borzello is high on Pinson. He recently stated:
At the next level, Pinson has the ability to be a matchup problem. He has good size for the perimeter, and his passing ability and vision are outstanding. Pinson can make difficult passes with either hand, and can see over the defense. He has great length and is very athletic. Pinson can also get to the rim on most defenders. In order to truly be a dominant player, he needs to become more consistent with his jumper and also improve his ball-handling ability.
