Strengths: Andrew Harrison has elite size and could play either guard position. Harrison finishes strong at the basket and shot 77.7 percent from the free throw line. Harrison is a streaky shooter who can get hot once he sees the ball go in. Harrison was one of the main leaders on two talented Kentucky teams. Harrison is a very aggressive defender and has the frame to guard multiple positions. Harrison doesn’t let mistakes on offense impact his effort on defense. Andrew Harrison is an extremely competitive player and wants the ball in his hands in the clutch.
Weaknesses: Andrew Harrison isn’t a natural playmaker and can sometimes struggle setting his teammates up. Harrison is inconsistent and can disappear at times. Harrison’s jumper needs to improve if he’s going to be a full-time starter. Harrison can give off bad vibes at times with poor body language. Harrison mumbled a racial slur about Frank Kaminsky after the Final Four loss to Wisconsin.
Projection: Andrew Harrison has a lot to like from his size, ability to score anywhere on the floor and his above-average defending ability. However, Harrison’s inconsistency and questionable leadership skills have many questioning if he’s worth a high draft pick. I’d take a risk on Harrison in the late first round possibly early second round.
