Height: 6-4
Weight: 189
College: Texas A&M
Classification: Junior
Birthdate: Unknown

Projected Draft Range: Likely Undrafted

Pros:

Decent scorer off the dribble
Has decent shooting potential
Adequate playmaker
Adequate rebounder for his size
Adequate defender that can get steals
Solid athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Reluctant to take threes
Bad free throw shooter
Can be careless on offense, is turnover prone
Can be too passive on offense
Can tend to be unfocused defensively

Summary:

Manny Obaseki is a very athletic combo guard that excels at scoring the basketball.  He is an aggressive scorer that will drive hard to the hoop, and he can score in a variety of ways.  He also can stuff the stat sheet, but he also can tend to be turnover prone and prone to lapses defensively. 

He didn’t play as much as anticipated. While he had some good games, he ultimately had a disappointing freshman season, and he will really need to work on his jump shot moving forward. If he can put his skills altogether and reach his full potential, he could end up being a solid role player in the NBA.
