Cleveland is effective at the 4-spot right now. He is good in the pick and dive action where he can use his mobility to stretch the defense to the arc. Then he has the strength and touch to finish around the basket. He is productive and a consistent rebounder.

Cleveland’s game only continues to improve as his grows and matures. He is strong body who can post up and score with his back to the basket. Yet he has face up skill that allows him to facilitate from the high post. His best attributes are his hands and feet that allow him to affect the game consistently.

Cleveland showed tremendous versatility for a kid that has not stepped foot into the hallways of high school. He hit the spot up 3 and showed craftiness by putting the ball on the floor to finish. He has a feel for the game and can finish in transition. His current position is still along the frontline. He showed back to the basket skill by scoring on the block. It will be interesting to see how tall Cleveland gets in future years.
