Articles about Jarrid Famous

June 21, 2011

Jarrid Famous - Famous never really did anything on a South Florida team that, before, during, and especially after the Dominique Jones era, could really have used an extra offensive option. He did exhibit a mid-range jumpshot in his senior season, finishes reasonably well, and he also ran the court well for one so big. But Famous cannot create in the post, on the perimeter, or anywhere. He is a finisher, and a finisher who gets stripped easily. Famous is on the radar because he's athletic, and not the Benson/Jajuan Johnson type of athletic, but the kind of athletic that also has sufficient strength for the interior. He uses these to get position around the basket, while also hustling hard, and rebounding fairly well, particularly offensively. Yet Famous doesn't block shots, defends via the foul, turns it over far too much, is awkward, raw, underdeveloped, would rather not handle the physical play, and has limited skill. But at least he added the mid range jumper. Maybe if he starts making fewer mistakes, he can replicate the career of Malik Allen.
