NBA Comparison: Rasheed Wallace/Tyrus Thomas

Strengths: Raw PF with supreme athleticism and length ... Runs the floor like a gazelle. Extremely fluid run/jump athlete ... Very explosive athlete who seems to just be scratching the surface of his potential ... Has a solid frame to put weight on and while still very skinny now, his bone structure suggests that he'll be able to add significant weight without any problems ... Has huge hands, which are both a positive and negative as his shot seems to have been affected some. Obviously the positives being that he can control rebounds and palm the ball very easily ... Has surprising passing ability for a bigman ... Focused, hard working kid ... Has some nice footwork in the post, utilizing drop steps and sealing his man. Shows a willingness to play physical despite his lack of body strength ... Athleticism and length are rare, allowing him to block shots at their apex ... Gets a lot of put back dunks just due to his great athleticism and hustle ... Has NBA all star potential if he gets stronger and his offensive game continues to develop ...

Weaknesses: Still needs to get a lot stronger. At 200 lbs, he still gets pushed around, and struggles to hold position at this point, although his body should benefit greatly working with strength and conditioning coaches at UK ... Needs to develop more scoring ability ... Shot roughly 55% from the line in high school. Shooting touch is good, but still lacks consistency on his mid range shots. His hands are so big he shoots the ball using too much of his palm. But that is something he is working on correcting about his shot ... Face up game shows potential but needs to keep improving ... Added strength will allow him to play a lot more physical and be much more effective on the glass getting rebounds ... Feel for the game and motor is showing improvement, but at times he doesn't play to his abilities or dominate the way he could ... A late 1994 kid, so just a bit older than his class ...

Notes: Measured at 6'10 (in shoes) 199 lbs, with a 7'1.5 wingspan at the 2012 Amare Stoudemire Skills Academy ... Appears to be a guy that needs time before attempting the jump to the league. But could be tempted by the possibility of being a first rounder after just one season at UK ... Playing at UK has it's positives and negatives. On the positive side he's going to have great competition every day with guys like Willie Cauley-Stein and Julius Randle there. On the negative side, getting playing time and many shot opportunities could be a real challenge. Staying 2 years for his own development is probably best ... Late bloomer ... Appears to be one of the biggest sleepers heading into college basketball next season ...
