Admiral Schofield Stats

Admiral Schofield was one of the most complete players in college basketball last season, averaging 16.5 points per game (PPG) and 6.1 rebounds per game (RPG) while shooting an impressive 41.8 percent from beyond the arc.

A strong, physical defender with a dangerous perimeter shot and a top-end motor, Schofield has the right kind of tools to carve out a significant role at the next level. However, the Tennessee product is not without his flaws.

While decently athletic, Schofield lacks an explosive first step and he could struggle guarding smaller, quicker players in the NBA. He also needs to improve his free-throw shooting, having shot 69.8 percent in his senior season.

Admiral Schofield NBA Draft Predictions

Boston Celtics (No. 20, No. 22) or Utah Jazz (No. 23)

The Celtics have been linked to Schofield after putting him through a pre-draft workout this week. If they do decide to draft him, Schofield could be an excellent fit. Schofield projects as an NBA-ready prospect who could play a role right away in Boston thanks to his versatility as a defender and his 3-point shooting ability.

However, Schofield could be an excellent fit in Utah as well. The 22-year-old could provide some much-needed depth on the wing as a reliable shooter and defender. Surrounding Donovan Mitchell with big defenders and capable shooters could help take Utah over the top, making Schofield a great fit with the Jazz.
