Admiral Schofield

A favorite of Soaring Down South as well as this writer, Admiral Schofield was a brilliant leader in his senior season at Tennessee alongside his running mate Grant Williams and point guard Jordan Bone – all of whom have declared for the 2019 NBA Draft.

Beyond a chiseled, NBA-ready frame (6-foot-6, 241 pounds, ripped) and the potential for switching across a myriad of positions, Schofield is also an extremely consistent three-point shooter. With fairly impressive athleticism and solid form, his three-point jumper should convey to the NBA level quite easily.

Per College Basketball Reference, Schofield shot 38.7 percent from deep in his four-year college career on a 37.3 percent three-point attempt rate, though none of his triples were more clutch than the ones in the 2018-19 regular season against then number one in the country Gonzaga:

In the 2018-19 season, Schofield shot a career-high 41.8 percent from deep on nearly 5 attempts per game, and The Stepien’s shot chart tool shows that Schofield was comfortable taking NBA-range triples as well – going 50 of 124 from NBA range (40.3 percent) during the season as well.

Comfortable in spot-up and pull-up scenarios, Schofield would be a terrific high-value, high-floor selections for the Atlanta Hawks in the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft.
