BrandonClayScouting.com Player Evaluations

Date: June 11, 2016
Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: Nike Elite 100 Camp (St. Louis, Mo.)

Honor asserted himself as one of the better 2018 guards in the building this weekend. He brought energy, leadership and shot making to the camp games. His ability to get defenders back on their heals and then hit jumpers with the space created makes him an effective lead guard that can score.

Date: May 28, 2016
Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: Nike EYBL Session IV (Suwanee, Ga.)

Honor is a strong-framed option at the position. What he lacks in height, he gets back in efficiency and production. A right-handed shooter, Honor can let it fly. In 16 EYBL games, he is averaging 11 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists. More importantly, Honor is shooting 91 percent from the line, 36 percent from beyond the arc and 48 percent from the field. He’s a true floor general rarely over dribbling or missing the open man. He made a beautiful alley oop to Kevin Knox.

Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: High School Season (Orlando,Fla.)

Honor can score the ball and distribute it as well. He’s got a solid, bumper car type of frame at the position. His ability to hit the open jumper or turn the corner on the pick and roll stood out during a matchup against Renaldo Segu. On the other end, Honor was able to keep Segu in front of him.

Date: May 3, 2015
Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: Bob Gibbons Invitational (Suwanee, Ga.)

Honor is a point guard who can put points up in a hurry. He shoots the ball with confidence and accuracy. He showed intensity on the defensive end as well. The long-term concern with Honor will be his size. The next 12-18 months will be key to see how Honor can transition his game to higher levels.
