NBA Comparison: N/A

Strengths:
Late bloomer who began to emerge late in his college career. An athletic PF with good physical attributes and upside left despite being a senior ... Possesses an NBA body ... Aminu has a huge wingspan and solid hands, which helps him to catch the ball ... When back to the basket and going for a turnaround jump-shot, he likes turning to the middle on both sides ... He shows the ability to play pick-and -roll effectively (very difficult for guards to get around him due to his size and length); rolls to the basket well and attacks the rim effectively or pops out for the jump-shot ... On the low post, he possess an effective right-hand baby hook shot that likes to use ... Aminu has decent range up to 15 feet and solid mechanics and follow through ... He showed that he can pump-fake and use one or two dribbles to get to the basket (extremely quick and long first step) ... Above average ball-handling ability for player his size ... Excels rebounding the ball. He does a good job of boxing out and his 7-3 wingspan and athleticism helps him rebound ... Good motor and agility in transition (hustles to beat his man in transition and score easy baskets and defensively he always sprints back) ... Defensively Aminu does a good job at holding down his position ... His long arms allow him to keep space between himself and his defender and then jump to block shots or alter them (1.8 BPG). Good help side defender ...

Weaknesses: Lack s toughness to defend stronger players at PF position and finish trough traffic ... Lacks a defined postion at this point without the strength to battle in the post nor the skills to play on the wing ... Needs to improve his footwork and work into developing more inside moves ... Struggles playing away from the basket ... Inconsistent outside shooter ... Has to extend his range and be outside treat as well as free-throw shooting - .588 FT% ... Showed that he can be turnover prone when he is double-teamed (vs. Maryland and Georgia St. 5 TO) ... Has limited vision and good passing ability from the post 0.7 APG.
