H.S. Scouting Report

First Round

One of the most steadily improving players in the class of 2022, Starling seems to get a little taller, a little stronger and a little better each time we see him. A pure scorer at his core, Starling is creative on offense without wasting too many dribbles or playing out of control. He is at his best getting to the rim or using a series of floaters and pull-up jumpers but his deep shooting has to be respected as well. He does a solid job of getting others involved and could eventually play as a full time, albeit scoring, point guard.

H.S. Athletic Background

JJ Starling is a 6-4, 180-pound Point Guard from Baldwinsville, NY.

2022-23 Stats: 11.2 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 1.1 APG

JJ Starling entered the season as a projected first-round pick, exiting high school as a five-star prospect. Reasons for Starling being rated so high were due to his blend of size, athleticism and his ability to score the ball (particularly as a shooter) with upside as a playmaker.

However, from the moment of his first game with the Fighting Irish, it was clear that Starling's jumper was not the same as it was just a few short months prior.

Overall, it was a rocky season for Starling and the regression in his jumpshot (29-percent from three) has resulted in his floor as an impact scorer falling a bit but he has tremendous upside and if he finds his rhythm and mechanics again, he could easily make the jump up to No. 1 when we look back in a year.
