Strengths: Mobile forward who moves well for his age and size; can pull up and knock down a jumper from out to the 3-point arc. Has a solid post game, with good hands and a soft left hook that he'll utilize whenever he gets a chance. Can put the ball on the floor and keeps his head up when he does so; willing post passer.
Weaknesses: Still very much a "tweener," who was able to get by previously on his size alone but is now learning how to develop a combo forward's game in a still-developing body. Needs to continue to develop consistency with mid-range jump shot and another post move or two. Must continue to develop overall foot speed and lateral quickness to defend more mobile forwards.
Overall: There's a lot of upside to this young forward, whose game could go in several directions. He certainly looks like he'll grow a few more inches, and if he continues to refine his skillset both in the paint and outside of it, there's a good chance he's a high-major '4' man in two years' time. If he puts in the necessary work in both the gym and the weight room, Crisler could be one of the top prospects in the 2019 class in this region.
