Christopher Styles (Ooltewah) brought a feisty game to the PrepHoopsTN Summer Combine.  Styles projects as a shooting guard, or more vaguely a wing.  Entering his sophomore season, Styles is almost ready to score at the varsity level.  He has clear strengths and weaknesses and a willingness to work to improve both.

See how he measured up in June 2019.

  • Wing
    • Class of 2022
    • 6’1″ 162.3 pounds
  • Wingspan — 6’2 3/4″
  • Height w/o shoes — 6’1″
  • Height w shoes — 6’2″
  • Hand Span — 9.0″
  • Hand Length — 8.0″
  • Lane Agility — 12.03, 12.62
  • 3/4 court sprint — 3.78, 3.79, 3.86
  • Summer Combine Ranking — #34

NBA Stylistic Comparison: 2016 Wizards Alan Anderson

Christoper invested in every drill. His tenacity will carry him further than the average man. He does have one major limitation and that is foot speed.

Styles shoots slightly better than average both catch-and-shoot and off the dribble. He just doesn’t get up the floor fast. Styles’ 3/4 court times hovered around 3.80, which is not good. Ladders, plyometrics, and sprints are good drills to develop speed. Styles needs to improve in this facet quickly.

Entering his sophomore season he does have potential to help his program. Styles brings nice height (6’2″) and again his shot is decent.

Styles is one of those ‘yes, sir, no sir’ guys that some coaches truly love. He is extremely coachable. In fact, Styles seeks out instruction where most players accept it. His eagerness to improve will be another help in these key development years.
