2007 Pre-Draft Scouting Report by Matthew Maurer

Assets
Athletically Young is an elite athlete blessed with explosiveness … Possesses a great first step to get full separation from his defender … Dangerous on the baseline drive where his body control and athleticism allow him to make spectacular finishes around the rim … Defensively his lateral quickness, anticipation skills and quick hands make him a treat to play the passing lanes for steals … Possesses three point range on his jumper … Mid-range shooting has improved when taking one or two dribbles and then pulling up … Young has a great motor, consistently moving without the ball for open looks … Shows signs of being a great passer with his court vision and ability to dish off on drives … Quality rebounder due to his leaping ability and long arms … Great finisher in transition where his athleticism allows him to finish with flair … Being left handed can make him a bit awkward to defend as right handed players are usually the norm for opposing defenders … Potential is very high as he has yet to even scratch the surface … Will back down smaller forwards and shoot the turnaround jumper … Possesses a decent basketball IQ that is constantly improving …

L
iabilities
Lacks the killer instinct to dominate his opponents on a consistent basis … Could stand to improve his upper body strength … Needs to protect the ball better as he has a habit of being careless with the ball … Defensively his footwork must improve when defending on the perimeter …Confidence can really go through periods of ups and downs … Intensity level is questionable … Perimeter shooting is prone to bouts of streakiness … Still learning how to consistently create shot off the dribble … Tends to be too aggressive and gamble on disrupting passing lanes for steals, leaving his assignment open …. Below average body strength prevents him from finishing after contact occurs … Even when you consider his age Young doesn’t have a great feel for the game …Struggles some with the physicality of the college game … Ball handling, while improved, still leaves a lot to be desired … Can get a little too gung-ho with settling for the perimeter shot instead of driving to the basket …
