Kansas picks up Mervyn Lindsay

  • InsideMDSports

    Hot Sauce

    He was originally a Texas Tech commit out of California. This is 2011 too, pretty rare this late in the game but I bet he finally got an offer. Small forward most likely, 6'5.

    ESPN evaluation (even though they grade him as a 77 and 1 star):

    Strengths:
    Lindsay has grown a few inches in the last year and it appears he may not be done as he is a young looking prospect. His frame is outstanding with long arms and he has soft hands. The left-hander has a smooth stroke out to 22-feet, especially in a catch and shoot situation. In addition, he is an astute passer who can find the open man in the half court site.

    Weaknesses:
    Although his shot is smooth, it can be very streaky. In addition, he needs to show a greater urgency of getting open when defenders close out him. His ball skills are weak and he essentially doesn't have any signs of a mid-range game.

    Bottom line:
    There are few players that have the size and shooting ability of Lindsay. If he can improve his energy level at both ends (doesn't like to guard) and add to his skill set (particularly his ball handling) he has a chance to be a solid player at the mid-major level.

    Sounds like he could be a solid 4 year role player.
