STRENGTHS IN SHERROD WRIGHT'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Leaping Ability, explosive to basket, Very strong and physical player

AREA TO IMPROVE IN SHERROD WRIGHT'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Ballhandling

EVALUATION: Sherrod is only a unior butg he will make colleges very excited this year. He a very strong and physical player. Sherrod can get to the basket with an explosive first step.

Wright plays the game above the rim too. He is a very tough player to stop when he is going to the rim.

Even though he is right handed he is more comfortable going to his left and finishing. Coach Bob Cimmino would actually like to see him going more to his right.

Coach Bob Cimmino added three things about Sherrod: "Never leaves the gym, student of the game, and he wants to learn."

All of this will make Sherrod a high major player.
