Culver had a very impressive freshmen season after joining the team as a three star prospect. He's a versatile rangy/lanky guard with good size and ball skills. He shoots the ball very well from the perimeter. He has a high release and good lift on his shot, pretty much unblockable. In addition, he's capable of creating his own shot. Last season he shot 38% from three, but in conference play he shot 42%. One impressive trait about Culver is his ability to move off the ball. He rarely stays stationary in the half court. He relocates well in the court, impressive for a freshman. Culver may benefit from utilizing the mid-range shot in order to become even more of a weapon.
Culver puts the ball on the floor well playing downhill but occasionally struggles to finish. As he adds more strength, he'll be able to finish at the rim more consistently through contact. His free throwing shooting was subpar (64%) but it doesn't deter him from attacking the paint. He rebounds well from the guard position, 4.8 per game, 6.3 per 40 minutes. On the defensive end he really competes, 0.70 PPP, according to Synergy. He helps and recovers well because of the amount of ground he covers with his length. Overall he's a solid individual defender with good hands. I had the chance to watch Texas Tech live three times this season and he disrupts opponents with the ability to guard three positions.
