JAMES BOUKNIGHT SCOUTING REPORT

Bouknight is one of the top returning prospects in college basketball after a promising freshman campaign where he averaged over 13 points per game on 46% shooting. Bouknight is a more of a scorer than a shooter and has a high upside as an shot creator. He has all the physical tools to excel on the next level with his athleticism, ball handling and offensive creativity. He occasionally flashes passing instincts but will need to cut down on his turnovers as he had more turnovers than assists as a freshman.
