One of the more skilled guards in the 757, Kris has scored over 1,000 points for his high school career and has proven his value playing both on and off the ball. A versatile shot maker who’s not afraid of the moment, Kris is best running off screens thanks to his ability to make catch and shoot jumpers, pull-ups, floaters and utilizing his vision to function more as a combo guard. He makes quick decisions on the move and can navigate a ball screen and execute pick and roll action. Kris is athletic and quick footed, has a very good first step and the ability to play at different speeds, his stops and starts are abrupt, explosive. You have to respect his ability to knock down shots at all levels and play him tight but he does have the quickness and ball handling skills to beat most defenders. He is an excellent shooter with great range; his mechanics are sound, repeatable. He has a quick high release, very fluid. Possesses strong scoring instincts to compliment his passing skills and playmaking ability. Kris is a very good shooter off the dribble, efficient; stays on balance, excellent rhythm and fluidity, gets very good elevation. He possesses great court awareness and plays with confidence, a swagger knowing that he can take over a game in spurts. His ability to create separation or to engage defenders to create space is impressive. Defensively Kris brings tremendous energy and toughness. A dogged defender on ball and a savvy off ball defender with excellent anticipation skills in passing lanes. Kris is a highly under appreciate guard although he is a multiple All TCIS selection and 1,000 point scorer. Under the mentorship of former UVA guard and ACC legend Donald Hand all of that figures to change as Coach Hand expects he should be able to secure offers at the Division I level with the right situation benefiting from his move to Great Bridge Christian Academy with the opportunity to play a tougher, more exposure conducive schedule on a team that features three players currently with division I offers.
