Pitts showed a versatile skill at the camp. He demonstrated the ability to hit jumpers from perimeter while also showing body control off the dribble. His ability to play on the perimeter with his size makes him a match up problem for many players he will face on a nightly basis at Lakeview Academy. Finding consistency on his 3-point jumper will be the key for his production this season.
Pitts is a talented guard with tools. He has size and showed that he could stick with the other talented players in the camp. His challenge in months to come is to add strength and toughness. Pittshas grown quicker than his body can compensate in some ways. We will look for him to grow and mature in years to come. However, one area of his game that he can go to work at immediately is his ability to his shot off quicker. Playing at faster tempos, it will be important to develop a quick release with accuracy.

A player can tell when he is having a good camp when he earns a nickname midway through the day. Pitts earned the nickname Chandler Parsons because of his shot making and defensive abilities at the camp. The sophomore has good size standing at 6-3 and adds plenty of activity on both ends of the floor. His willingness to mix it up in the lane while also being able to push ahead in transition made him one of the most productive players at the camp.
