Chandler Jacobs- DBU
Measurables: Position: Shooting Guard, Height: 6'3, Weight: 205lbs, Wingspan: 6'8
Strengths: In one of the strongest D2 conferences in the country Jacobs is the standout... Explosive 3-level scorer who is has having one of the most efficient high volume seasons ever... Shooting 60% from 2, 50% from 3 and engulfing almost 9 rebounds a game at the time of writing this... Explosive athlete with incredibly smooth ball skills in isolation that make him aesthetically pleasing to watch... Crafty ambidextrous finishing ability and the confidence to challenge rim protectors... Almost impossible to stay in-front of at the D2 level.
Weaknesses: Very streamlined game that works for him and against him... Can be robotic in certain actions... Needs to make faster decisions in pick & roll to continue getting high percentage shots at higher levels... Good feet but the focus on defense is not always there... Size wise he is a little stuck between positions at the 1 and the 2.
Projected Level: One of the rare D2 seniors who actually looks like a better prospect in the NBA G-League than he does in Europe... Jacobs' dynamic athleticism and high level shot making should allow him to get some looks at almost every 1 division in Europe, but if G-league aspirations don't come to fruition look for him a league like A2 Italy.
Overview: The most dynamic scorer to come out of D2 basketball since Jhonathan Dunn from Southern Nazarene.... The talent Jacobs possesses is not in question while watching him scorch the majority of opponents that attempt to match up with him, Jacobs overall success as a pro will more-so be predicated on how he adapts to facilitating and making decisions against more equitable athletes and seasoned players.
