Harper looks as if he will be a long armed athletic playmaking guard with excellent size - and outstanding athleticism, Blake showcased a very nice first step and the ability to create his own shot very effectively, and basic passing skills on the drive and dish. Loved his decision making in the half-court, giving us the impression that he clearly has point guard skills and mentality and it’s even more natural to him then a combo, he’s a coach’s son so that is frankly no surprise. He can also pull-up off the dribble, which he did nicely on a couple of occasions. His 3-point stroke looks better than many we have seen at this age and has more than acceptable results. If a shorter man is on him (which is often the case) he can take him down to the post a little bit and score with his back to the basket.
Defensively is where Harper is also very effective; as he has terrific tools to get the job done (size, length, sneaky athleticism), and is fully committed to the task, getting right into his man’s face in a fundamental stance and being extremely disruptive, particularly in the passing lanes.
