Draft Notes

After a solid freshman season at Notre Dame Starling transferred to Syracuse.

He’s a pure scoring guard who has a nose for the basket. Can get it done from 3 levels.

Has decent size and overall athleticism but isn’t elite as an athlete. Has good body control and knows how to get defenders off balance and get into the lane.

Needs to be more efficient with his outside shooting, free throw shooting and overall offensive game.
