Scouting Report

Strengths: 6-foot-2 and has a long frame. McFadden is a knockdown, and consistent, shooter from both mid-range and long distance. When he gets on a roll, he can shoot it just about as well, or better, as anyone else in the gym. McFadden is capable of being his team's go-to scorer because of his ability to score in more ways than one. Although shooting is an area of strength, he also does really well with moving without the ball. He knows how to make plays for himself with timely cuts off screens from anywhere on the court. He does a good job utilizing the baseline and getting himself open for scores under and around the basket. The junior guard also does well with penetrating and finishing at the rim with floaters/layups over bigger defenders in the paint. Hard to stop in transition because he finishes well and can blow past his defenders. He displays good anticipation on the defensive end and forces turnovers with his ability to play the passing lanes.

Weaknesses: Skinny physical build with more room to grow and get stronger. Although he's crafty with and without the ball, he's not the quickest. Athleticism can continue to get better with more work. On-ball defense has room for improvement; particularly moving his feet and learning when and when not to overplay and gamble.

Overall: Coming off a torn ACL that sidelined him for his sophomore year, McFadden will look to establish himself as a go-to scoring option and playmaker for Holy Ghost Prep this upcoming season. The junior guard is good shooter who can make shots from all over. He's a solid finisher at the basket and can lose his man in the half court because cuts well off the ball. His defense is continuing to improve, but he can make plays on that end as well, by way of playing the passing lanes and starting the fast break. Look for McFadden to be on the radar of numerous Division II and III schools over the next year.
