Davon JeffersonHt/Wt: 6-8 / 215 lbs
2008 Draft Profile - Davon JeffersonSubmitted by Kevin Cao
Strengths: Has an advanced offensive skill level for a high schooler...Excellent face up game with an automatic 12-15 foot jump shot, and lethal first step which he uses to attack the rim...He is great in transition, tip dunks, finishes very well...Intiguing combination of size and athleticism...At 6-8 he has inside/outside ability...Knows how to play in the post and with his back to the basket...Long arms allow him to play bigger than his size...Good foot work and body control, really excels around the basket...Tries to dunk everything...Well developed muscular frame...Long arms and extremely quick and agile for a player his size...Excellent rebounder...Good fundamentals as he boxes out and knows how to use his body and athleticism to his advantage when rebounding...Nice shot blocker...Capable of spectacular plays...
Weaknesses: Has the size, quickness, and athleticism to be a terror on the defensive end but hasn't quite put it all together yet...Jump shot can be streaky...Not a threat from the three-point line...Can get to the rim when he wants because of his size but will have trouble down the road if his ball handling skills don't improve...Dominates on the high school level, but he's older than a lot of the competition...
