Jonathan Alexandre / 6’5″ / SF / Frisco Legacy /  Level: Low-Mid Major

Strengths: 

  • Strong, smooth and athletic wing who is always at the rim; attacks the cup at will 
  • Transitional lob target; outmuscles smaller on-ball defenders
  • Active on the glass; physically tough; competes and plays with a high motor

Strengths: 

  • Strong-bodied wing who moves well on the court and is very aggressive 
  • Slash and score forward who finishes extremely well in the paint with floaters and contact layups 
  • Puts a tremendous amount of pressure on the defense when going downhill 
  • Handles the ball really well; can be a secondary ball-handler; has a tight handle 
  • Plays physical; beast on the glass; likes to post up smaller defenders and score on the inside; draws fouls; 
  • Takes pride in matchups; defends his position; tough competitor

Weaknesses:

  • Weird release on his jumpshot; needs to improve his jumper from outside the paint 
  • Will need to tone up to have a college-ready body; needs to work on his body
