David Nickelberry, 6-7, Small Forward, Windermere Prep, FL 2017 Class, Uncommitted

-Will bring the ball up the court at times and get his team into their offense
-Excellent passer. Likes to find the open man and get teammates easy baskets. Sees the game at a very high level
-Uses both hands to pass
-Has some touch on his jumper, so may be able to develop this part of his game in time if he can fix his shooting mechanics

-Only has a 6'8 wingspan and an 8'6 ½ standing reach
-Average athlete. Doesn't possess great quickness. Struggles to turn the corner with better defenders on him.
-Struggles to score in the half-court
-Very limited outside shooter. Has an unorthodox lefty jumper with a very flat arc. Doesn't get very good results with it at this stage. Splays his misses all over the place.
-Turns the ball over at a very high rate. Not a great ball-handler at this stage. Struggles to finish with his off hand.
-Not overly physical, which limits him defensively. Mostly indifferent on this end of the floor.
-Bad body language. Gets visibly frustrated with teammates

Outlook Small forward who is getting a lot of attention on the national level. #33 ranked recruit according to Shows unique court vision and versatility for a player his size, but still figuring out how to utilize that as he's not a great athlete or a very effective scorer in the half-court. Guards mostly power forwards, but fancies himself somewhat of a point forward.
