Seeley made the most of his first year at CSF after sitting out a year (transfer from California). He thrives in a fast paced game, but has shown the ability to attack the basket in halfcourt offenses. He has a very good first step and gets into the lane quickly, with the ability to finish with either hand. Seeley is also a good spot-up shooter from long-range, having a quick, fluid stroke. He is active on the boards for his size, and is quick to get to missed shots. He is a good on-ball defender, moving his feet well and forcing his man away from the basket area. He can either push the ball or run the wings in transition, and is quick to the basket.
What he needs to show this season: Seeley is quick and moves well, but I want to see him do a better job moving without the ball, looking to hit open spots and create separation from his man. Also, I want to see him improve his ballhandling enough to where he can use his dribble to create space for his jumper, as well as create shots for his teammates. He needs to start to add a mid-range jumper to his offensive arsenal, as he will not get into the lane as easily at the next level. On the defensive end, Seeley has to be more conscious of his positioning off the ball. He has a tendency to roam and get turned around against motion offenses.
