Scouting Report: Deshawn Harris-Smith

Class: 2023

AAU Team: Team Takeover

High School Team: Paul VI (VA)

Height: 6’4

Strengths: Harris-Smith is an energetic combo guard who plays with confidence and he’s only a freshman. His long arms and lanky body suggests he still has some growing to do and could easily add a few inches before his high school career is done. He moves well without the ball looking for scoring opportunities on cuts to the basket; he is also solid rebounder.

Improvement Opportunity: Like most freshman, Harris-Smith needs to add strength and develop better decision making.

Projection: I predict that Harris-Smith will develop into a division 1 player over the next three years. Whether he is a high major or small school prospect will depend on how well he continues to improve on both ends of the court, particularly his decision make and aggressiveness on offense.
