Position: PF/C                    College: Michigan            Class/YOB: Junior

Height: 7’0                         Weight: 240                      Wingspan: 7’0

 

Strengths:

  • Pick-and-pop nightmare. Feasts on open threes and mid-range jumpers. Has a good pump fake and can attack aggressive closeouts.
  • Slick footwork in the post. Has a reliable spin move and utilizes fakes to get open.
  • Plays hard and runs the floor well. Makes opponents sprint back every possession.
  • Great size. Is quick enough to play the four in big lineups and big enough to play the five.

Weaknesses:

  • Average rebounder. Improved a lot from a year ago but still won’t be leading any team on the glass.
  • Unintimidating rim protector. Despite size, he doesn’t blot a lot of shots.
  • Lacks the strength to win physical battles on the interior.
  • Pick-and-roll defense may be a struggle initially. Quickness is plus for a 7-footer but is sometimes too aggressive hedging. Should be able to switch effectively with time.
