Roscoe Smith is a 6’8 extremely long and athletic wing forward who plays aggressive at both ends of the floor. He attacks the rim well with either hand and uses his athletic ability to finish strong inside. He has range out beyond the 3pt line with ease and a nice mid-range pull up jumper. He uses his long frame on the defensive end of the floor to alter and swat away shots with ease. He has a ton of upside which is why so many schools are after him for his services.
