Sharpe is projected to go in the late first round or early second round in the coming draft and is ranked 31st overall on ESPN’s best available. He sits at 30th overall on The Athletic’s Sam Venecie’s big board.


Offense


Strengths


Low Post Scoring

Sharpe’s biggest strength on offense is getting buckets in the paint. He scores well on the low block and uses his size to overpower smaller defenders for easy layups and powerful dunks. He is more nimble than his size may suggest and has the bounce to rise above for open looks.


Granted most of his scoring came in the paint, his 51.9% rate from the field is solid but not great. He only averaged 9.5 points per contest, yet that was in just 19.2 minutes per game. His per 40 minute metric has him racking up 19.8 PPG.


Rebounding

You will find later on in this profile that rebounding is truly more of an overall strength for Sharpe, but his offensive rebounding shall not go without props. Sharpe is active on the offensive boards. He plays with a lot of energy and has awareness and feel for the direction a missed shot is going.


That knowledge and instinct allows Sharpe to soar over defenders for putback slams and easy second-chance buckets. Sharpe snags 3.3 rebounds per game and had an offensive rebounding percentage of 18.1% according to Sports Reference.


Weaknesses


Outside Scoring

Sharpe only attempted two 3-point shots over the course of 29 collegiate games and he missed both of them. Shooting is something he will have to improve on to be more than just solid within the league’s modern playstyle.


Almost all of his shot attempts and makes came within the paint. Even just a serviceable midrange jumper would elevate him as a prospect. We just did not see much of that at Chapel Hill.
