JaKeenan Gant: Hey look Guys One we Can get!

USA TODAY Sports

Meet JaKeenan Gant 6'8" 210 prototypical power forward. Super bouncy, good second jump, runs the floor well, can shoot the elbow jumper, almost no post game. We are in his top five along with Missouri, Syracuse, Tennessee, and Miami

Here is his scouting report:

Strengths:
Gant has that prototypical frame for the high major level with long arms and overall great length. He is ultra-bouncy and gets up twice before most get up once. He is a terror in the open court while filling the lane as he gets most of his points in transition and attacking the offensive glass in relentless fashion. In the half court set he can knock down the elbow jump shot or slash his way to the rim off the dribble.

Weaknesses:
Gant is still a young thoroughbred who is still picking up the nuances of the game. His overall offensive game is a bit raw as he depends on energy and athleticism at this stage. He can knock down elbow jump shots and has an occasional drop-step move, but overall his footwork (pivot work) and fundamentals (keeping the ball high) need to improve when operating in the paint. On the perimeter he still needs to improve his ball handling when attacking the rim and and add range to his jump shot.

Bottom Line:
Gant is a physical specimen with a terrific upside. He has the motor, athleticism, and budding skills to be an elite prospect someday.
