Greg reported he is going to the NBA draft....

nbadraft.net seems to think he should play DI hoops instead of going to the draft

==========================

Overall

86NBA Comparison: N/A

Strengths: Came into college as a top 10 recruit with huge potential ... Tremendous scorer with the ability to reel off big points in a short amount of time … Good ball handler for his size capable of bringing the ball up the court or taking his man off the dribble … Owns a quality first step to gain separation from his defender … Once in the lane, Brumbaugh possesses the body control and length to convert in traffic … Has an underrated basketball IQ that allows him to recognize mismatches and exploit them to his advantage … Owns great court vision which enables him to see the floor for open teammates … Has legit NBA three point range on his jumper … Quality rebounder who uses his length to grab boards out of his position … A natural lefty which automatically gives him an advantage on defenders since they're accustomed to defending right handed players … Plays the game with passion and emotion … Doesn’t back down from anything, competitive … Excellent in the open court where his speed and athleticism enables him to be a great finisher in transition … Defensively, he has great anticipation skills and quick hands to play passing lanes for steal opportunities … Aggressive at attacking the basket to create contact and draw fouls … Once on the line Brumbaugh is an excellent free throw shooter … Owns a solid turnaround jumper that he can make with some regularity … Feel for the game is tremendous, as one needs to consider the fact that after almost two years of non-organized ball, Brumbaugh simply dominated junior college basketball in one of the nation's premier JUCO conferences … After speaking with Coach Worrels, Brumbaugh is said to be a very coachable player who is eager to improve and seem to have matured ...

Weaknesses: Though just a sophomore, Brumbaugh will turn 23 this year ... Has had a number of off court troubles including losing his scholarship to Oklahoma State before his freshman season ... A good athlete, but not an explosive player capable of dominating opponents with his athleticism … Hasn’t improved tremendously on his upper body strength since high school … This can hinder him when absorbing contact on drives to the basket … Defensively, he has shown great improvement when defending on the perimeter, but remains a work in progress … Some of this has to do with his lateral movement, but fortunately it's something he can correct … Brumbaugh doesn’t possess the wingspan typically accompanied by someone of his size … Often settles for shooting three point shots from the perimeter, instead of putting pressure on defenders by going to the rim … This could be due to his mid-range game which has shown progress since high school, but is still an afterthought ... Doesn’t always let the game come to him and has a tendency to rush himself, but to his credit this could be partially attributed to him being the primary scoring option on his team … Shot selection can be questionable at times … Off court issues from his past have been well chronicled, but Brumbaugh has kept his nose clean this year … Tends to reach too much on defense for steals instead of moving his feet … Needs to improve on moving without the ball - he's accustomed to dominating the ball offensively … Will be viewed as a high risk high reward pick …

Notes: Has declared for the 2008 NBA draft ... Will have a lot to overcome if he chooses not to attend a Div 1 college before going pro ...

I know he wants to provide for his family but a mid 2nd rounder isn't a lock. You'd think even just one year against BE competition would help immensely .... I don't get it.

yeah but triple, even in Europe top tier players can make north of a million dollars, and they usually pay for all living expenses too.  This was a great move for a kid that really never wanted or cared to be in school.  Money bet is he goes undrafted, and ends up playing in Europe where his shoot first, no d, style of play will fit right in.  He'll dominate overseas and make great money.  Best of both worlds for him.
