Scouting Report
Dominates as a rebounder, especially on the offensive end. Uses his excellent wingspan, energy, and effort to battle constantly on the low post, and will simply shut down opponents. Hustles all the time, and will convert high-percentage buckets when his number is called. Also a charismatic player and a hard worker. Can be more of a shot-blocker. Not hulking for a post player and can use more muscle mass to put up with the pro pounding in the paint. Still needs significant development as a shooter (especially on free throws) and as a passer out of the post.
Long Range Potential: Athletic, bruising, above-average starting defensive center.
