Analysis

Ebanks came into this season off of a very strong freshman year, and while he is not putting up numbers that most might have expected, you can see flashes of what makes him an appealing NBA prospect. On offense, he has the size and speed that teams covet at the small forward position, but he still has to develop a lot of the basketball skills to go with them. He does a large part of his scoring off of offensive rebounds or broken plays. A more consistent jump shot would go a long way to making him more of a threat. Defensively, Ebanks has the potential to be a disruptive force, using his long arms and jumping ability to force offensive players into bad shots. He does need to make a more a consistent effort to round out his defensive game. Overall, his potential may be too good for teams to pass up this year.
