    Summary: I love JPP’s skill set and I think when it is all said and done, I will give him a first-round grade. However, I am going to be conservative with his evaluation right now. I have questions as to why he bounced around to another community college, as he must have struggled academically. Sometimes he doesn’t seem to love the game, but for the most part I like him as a prospect and he is worth taking a chance on. I’ll be very surprised if his name isn’t called in the top 25 picks.

    Player Comparison: Gaines Adams. Forget that Adams was a bust in Tampa. This comparison has everything to do will the SKILL SET and JPP is exactly like Adams. Different intangibles could lead to a different career for JPP.
