#OTRHoopsReport: Prospect Eval- LaGerald Vick- Oct. 22, 2014
SMU landed a commitment from Team Thad 2016 shooting guard LaGerald Vick
LaGerald Vick – (Memphis, TN.), –Team Thad– 2016
Position: Shooting Guard
Committed College: SMU
LaGerald Vick is one of the more underrated players in the country. Our staff witnessed his ability first hand, watching him in seveal events around the country. He was a standout this summer at our Elite 32 Session II. Vick can get to the rim at will with his attacking style of play. He is a physical driver and slasher that use his body not only to beat defenders to the rim but finish through contact on a regular basis. He can stop and pop in the lane when the help defenders cut off his drive.
5/17/14 – Under Armour Invitational (Houston, Texas) – Brandon Clay
I agree with both Jon and Shun below in Vick’s skill assessment and style of play. He was consistent here in attacking the rim off of the dribble and making plays in the lane as a result.
5/4/14 Bob Gibbons (Suwanee, Ga.) – Jonathan Hemingway
Vick is a athletic wing defender who will spend some time handling the basketball in spots. He is an open shooter, but not necessarily a guy who is going to work to find his shot.
4/12/14 KnoxVegas (Knoxville, Tenn.) – Shun Williams
Vick is an athletic wing that is very talented and skilled. Vick is an above the rim finisher in transition as well as in the half court. Vick can rebound and start the break or he sprints the lane where he can knock down the spot up three by reading penetration and moving to the open area. This 6’5 shooting guard displayed the ability to shoot the ball of the catch or off the dribble; he was 3/3 from behind the arc. He is a good ball handler and likes to use the right to left crossover to beat his man where he is thinking score all the way.
