Location: Nike EYBL Circuit Session III (Cartersville, Georgia)

Porter Jr. is a great athlete who can punch dunks through traffic. He is a high flying dunker. He is averaging 16 points on the circuit through 12 games and doing it on 48% FG shooting. Although we did not see the jumper today, he is shooting 22-50 from 3pt shooting (44%) which gives him big time upside at the next level.

Porter’s build and style reminds me somewhat of Stanley Johnson in his high school days. Porter doesn’t play with the same activity level that made Johnson such a coveted prep but showed flashes of what could come down the line.

Porter is a combo forward who splits time on the wing and in the high post. He has soft touch on his mid range jumper. He averaged 11 points per game, but he is not a high % shooter (39% from field and 31% from three). He added 4.7 rebounds per game.
