Scouting Report: A consensus Top-40 player nationally, Cleveland has some of the biggest programs in the nation recruiting him. A long, versatile guard/wing with good size, he plays with a ton of motor, elite athleticism, and can finish at the rim as well as anyone in the country. He has improved his perimeter shot and showed during the high school season that he can be a scoring threat from the perimeter as well. He has a very high IQ and plays well without the ball and has a knack for finding himself in the right place at the right time. On the other side, he has the potential to be a high-level multi-positional defender at the next level. He will be a highly sought after player throughout the rest of the summer and the fall, and he is already a priority recruit for some of the nations top programs.
