Bonzie Colson

Position: PF                        College: Notre Dame           Class/YOB: Senior

Height: 6’5                          Weight: 220                         Wingspan: 7’0

 

Strengths:

  • Terrific touch in and around the paint. Hits floaters and push-shots regularly.
  • Feel in the post is advanced. Has one of the best turnaround jumpers in the draft. Is automatic once he turns over his right shoulder.
  • Has a nose for the ball. Rebounds particularly well for his height and comes up with loose balls.
  • Exceptional length. Shows up on the glass, defensively, and in shooting over bigger defenders.
  • Pick-and-roll game is solid. Reads defense and finds open space to operate. Can score from all three levels.

Weaknesses:

  • Incredibly short for a post player. Length helps, but he is the height of a two-guard.
  • May struggle to score against NBA length. Lacks quickness and is a below the rim finisher. Tore up bigs in the best conference in the NCAA, but guys will be longer and stronger in the league.
  • Not a great defender. Gets backed down too easily. When length doesn’t save him, he gives up easy looks in the post.
  • Foot injury is worth noting. Broke his foot twice in the last five months. Teams will need to make sure it won’t be a chronic problem.
