Dariq Whitehead is a 6’7 combo guard who is a freak athlete with a lightning quick first step and explosive leaping ability. Great size and length for his position, as well as a long wingspan. Whitehead is unstoppable in transition, using his elite speed and athleticism to finish off a play with a monster dunk. In the half court he has vastly improved his handle and PnR vision. Whitehead is a three-level scorer who is confident with his shot, being able to score in a multitude of ways with extended range. Off the ball, he is an elite cutter who reads the defense well and can finish tall and strong over the defense. On defense, he is versatile and can switch and guard 1-4 using his impressive lateral quickness, hands, and length. He doesn’t have too many holes in his game. He still needs to improve his handle more, as well as develop a more creative arsenal around the basket, floaters, runners, etc. He can also play out of control at times while driving to the basket. Overall, Whitehead should be one of, if not the best player in this class and will head to the university of Duke next season.
