Rebounding
06.70
Nice rebounder, sports 5.6 OR% and 17.9 DR%. Does a decent job boxing out, but can lose positioning on occasion. Does a good job of immediately getting his head up and looking for the outlet pass.
Instincts/Awareness
06.50
A bit slow, but calculated, in his decision making. Can be a bit lazy with his passes. Most of his mistakes occur in a relatively short span of possessions, not over time. Would like to see him take smaller defenders to the rim on switches. Additionally, a tad too many tough threes. Occasionally develops tunnel vision attacking the basket, but sees the floor well when running the offense
Character/ Leadership/ Competitiveness

Not the most natural leader, but not afraid of the moment. Lets his play do the talking and doesn't have an ego.

On-Ball Defense
07.00
Great contesting jumpers with his length, ranks in the 97th percentile defending jumpers according to Synergy. Bites on pump fakes a bit too easily though. Impressive intensity off-ball, stays engaged. Can be a bit out of position with aggressive help defense, but this is part of Texas Tech's defensive DNA. Can struggle against bigger, stronger players, needs to put on more weight at next level.

Overall Analysis
Jarrett Culver is a well-rounded, versatile wing with real upside. He isn't necessarily elite in any particular area, but he does almost everything well enough. He's just had a huge growth spurt, and reports say that he may still have more room to grow. If he continues to grow, he may be able to even play as a small-ball 5. He possesses a rare skill: the ability to influence the game when his shooting touch may not be there. He truly has the potential to be a great wing player if he continues to develop and grow, which should put him as a top 5 prospect in the 2019 NBA Draft
