D.J. Hogg

Page updated as of 4/12/2020, scouting report written by Alan Lu.
2018 rankings were finalized on 6/21/2018.

Height: 6-8
Weight: 215
College: Texas A&M
Classification: Junior
Birthdate: 9/3/1996

2018 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 68โ€‹
Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Fairly good shooter, especially from deep
Decent scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on the move
Good playmaker
Adequate rebounder
Better than advertised athlete
Great size to play out on the wing

Cons:

Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Can be a streaky shooter
Does not draw enough free throws
Can be too passive on offense
Struggles to guard quicker players
Not overly explosive
Has short arms for a player his size

Summary:

D.J. Hogg is a skilled swingman that can shoot and pass the basketball.  He is a good, but not a great athlete, but his lack of explosiveness may make it difficult for him to routinely get all the way to the basket to garner scores off the dribble or to  defend quicker players in games.โ€‹

Right now, he looks to be a borderline second round candidate.  He has great size that enables him to shoot over most defenders, but he an be quite streaky from the field.  If he continues to improve his overall game, Hogg could end up being a solid role player in the NBA.
