The thing he has going for him is it looks like he has good co-ordination with those long chimp arms.

That's the key. The dude's arms are Barbosa-like, and he's already 6'4 or something, so even if he winds up being too slow to guard point guards, he might even be able to switch over to shooting guards. Sure, he's not particularly muscular, but he's also a guard (so muscles are less important) and 18, an age when hardly anyone is particularly muscular.
