#AskCoachB How do you see Jalen Lindsey's game translating to the next level?
— Sports Guru (@FieldJudge) December 20, 2013
If you are talking about the college level, there are some aspects of Jalen Lindsey's game that really really stand out.
First Lindsey (Franklin, Tenn./Huntington Prep) is a freakish athlete with an explosive and quick vertical leap. He also owns a 3-point jumper and hits it with consistency.
After that, he must become a more effective driver and passer. With his elite athletic ability, he will draw a crowd. He can use that talent to make driving plays, finishing plays and to defend. As a junior, the 6-foot-7 small forward was Mr. Basketball in Tennessee.
A statistic that really translates is rebounding, and this is an area in which he can improve. Right now he is most comfortable facing up from the 3-point line. Shooting and athleticism will translate right away at Providence.
Linsdey is headed to Providence to play for Ed Cooley, who will utilize his strength and size to develop his basketball IQ. His shooting and athletic ability will carry over to the college game in good fashion.
