Who wants to do a scouting report based off of less than 2 minutes worth of video? Me too!

Let’s get to some stats first. Via RealGM, Savrasov averaged 16 points in 10 games for Zenit-2, shooting 41% from the floor, 24% from the three-point line, 78% from the free throw line, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, and a shade over a block and a steal each game. I have no idea if that’s good based on the competition, but that’s what he did. Via FIBA, when Savrasov played for the Russian national team in 2017, he averaged about 9 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and nearly a steal a game while shooting 42% from the field, 37% from the three-point line and 60% from the free throw line.

Flimsy scouting report based off of 2 minutes of video? Check. Savrasov is #1 in your heart and #23 or #22 on the court. The first thing that stands out is that Savrasov is a pretty complete player. He can drive and dish. He has nice handles for being 6’9″. Actually, he has really nice handles for someone that size. Savrasov can jump pretty well for someone that size. He’s got a smooth stroke from the outside. This is a good basketball player with very little evidence to make that statement.

As you’ll note on the 2019 commitment page, the class is completely full. That’s right, there are 13 scholarship spots taken and there’s 1 available for 2020, possibly 2 if Jarrett Culver declares for the NBA Draft.
