If you have 12 minutes to spare, I recommend you check out this video. Just shows you even more of what this kid can do. He plays with a certain poise that makes everything he does look so easy, but in reality few can do what he can. The thing that most impressed me about this video was his vision. It's one thing to make a really nice pass to an open guy, but on numerous occasions, he seems to find guys that don't even really appear open. Yet somehow, he can sense where he needs to put the ball. This shows that he's a really "high basketball IQ" guy. When you put a whole bunch of these guys together (which is pretty much what we'll have the next couple of years), it's darn near impossible to stop.
Obviously he can shoot and has really nice range. He can drive to the basket and finish. He's got a nice handle. He seems to have good hands on defense. Those are all great. But I really think the reason why he's gonna be a star is in his head. Good luck to the opposing defenses that have to deal with Perrantes, Hall, Nolte, Anderson, Jesperson, Tobey, Brogdon, and Stith. So much basketball knowledge on one team, Bennett must be drooling. Few teams will be disciplined enough to even have a chance of not getting pummeled like Clemson last night.
P.S. - Easily the best part of the video is the move he pulls at 6:34. Straight up nasty.

He really looks kinda big. Very solidly built. You are totally right on in your evaluation.
He has great vision and is a very good shooter, passer, and facilitator for his high school team. Will not be a "traditional" PG that impresses you with his quickness and ball handling. Looks like a great fit for TB's system, which is proving to not need the quickest, most athletic players to be successful (e.g. Nolte, Jesperson). I hope he is quick enough however to handle ACC PG's.
Hopefully he gets a look at QB too with all those bombs that he threw. In all seriousness though, he looks like a badass PG that we need. It's such a disadvantage to have point guards that don't have an outside shot, and now we're going to have 3 (counting Teven Jones) point guards that defenders can't play off of..we're going to be filthy good very soon.
Anyone else think his game is similar to James Robinson's (sore subject, I know)? I think London has a better jumper, and they seem to have the same demeanor on the court and very similar court vision.
Really, really excited about having him and Devon to beef up the PG competition next year. He looks great in this video.
