Prospect Projection

Will is a high character kid, humble and coachable with a great work ethic, that is why i believe he has the most upside. Will has NBA potential and has recently been name a future top 15 NBA pick by seasoned draft analysts Jonathan Givony. Will has a transferable skill set, he can shoot, dribble and moves extremely well a 6’9.  If he does what he’s supposed to do over the next couple years, he will definitely be in the NBA.

This past season Riley has been putting the basketball world on notice, most notably as the basketball without boarders camp MVP and the Nike EYBL circuit. 

Riley is a long 6’9 guard who moves really well and throws off defenders with an unorthodox rhythm and uses a combination of skill & length to skate past defenders & make plays for himself and others.

Strengths

|Skill set| High IQ| communication

Will has a great skill set that allows him to get to his spots wherever he wants on the floor. He can handle the ball really well, he can shoot it with range off of the dribble and off the catch.

He also has an extremely high IQ, Will understands how to manipulate help defenders and makes the right plays most of the time.

He also has great awareness, he understands how to skate past help defenders & use his body to create space despite his slender frame.

Another thing that is really intriguing about Will is his ability to communicate. Most guys his age don’t lead well and understand how to talk to their bigs in the P&R. We were sitting courtside at the all Canadian game & you could hear Will directing his big to rescreen, roll & pop etc.

Weaknesses

 Strength|Playmaking|Ball handling

Will still has a lot of room for growth, he can put on some size and work on his ability to take contact and play through it. He also needs to work on his playmaking skills and making the right reads consistently to make those around him better. Will has a high IQ and understands how to attack and create angles to skate past defenders, however, in order for him to thrive at the highest levels of basketball, he needs to develop a tight handle, get the ball on a string.
