Can he be a first round pick after this season? He looks like he put on 20 lbs. of muscle since last year. His offense is much improved. He looks like he can play power forward in the NBA. He even lead the fast break in the game against Portland State yesterday.
Yes he most definitely can. Defensively, I don't think there's a quicker big in the college game. His lateral quickness is tremendous and he's a super quick leaper. He could be a first round pick off of his defensive potential alone. Any strides he's made offensively are gravy. Just on the defensive end of the floor he reminds me of Kenyon Martin with his agility.
Love the K Mart comparison
K mart comparison is spot on. I think Khem Birch can be a lare first rounder this year.
