Grad Year / Position: 2017 – Guard
School / Hometown: Central Gwinnett HS (Lawrenceville, Ga.)
Committed College: Undecided
Fluellen’s game is based upon skill and finesse. He uses touch and footwork to get shots in the paint or from the perimeter. His long wingspan gives him the ability to disrupt the passing lanes on the defensive end. The big question for Zion heading into his junior year with coach Branden Mayweather is whether he become more of a physical presence. He has the size and quickness to affect the game, however learning how to exert himself will be key for him to impact consistently.
Our first look at Fluellen was a positive one. The 6-3 shooting guard hit the pull-up jumper consistently in transition. He has the length to a problem on the defensive end as well. Impressively the sophomore was willing to work in the pick and roll situation and sacrifice to help his teammates get their own shot. Adding strength should be an area of development for the young guard in the upcoming months.
