NBA Comparison: Malik Rose

Aran Smith - 3/5/2006

Strengths: Tremendous rebounder who gives great effort every time out ... Long arms and good strength and leaping ability allow him to play bigger than his actual size ... Crashes the boards extremely hard, especially on the offensive end ... Has a real knack for anticipating boards, great reflexes ... Offensive skills inside are good, has a decent mid range jump shot out to 12 feet ... Good scorer, finisher, has good touch around the basket with contact ... Has good agility, runs the floor well. Solid in transition ... Explosive leaper ... Solid defender, holds position well, doesn't bite on fakes ... Offensively creates a wide target inside and seals his man well ...

Weaknesses: Listed at 6-8 but closer to 6-7, far below standard for an NBA power forward ... His size is his biggest detriment ... Lacks great passing ability ... Doesn't play a high caliber of opponent on a regular basis in the WAC ... Free throw shooting is below average ... A true power forward, lacks the foot speed to play the 3 position ... Likely to struggle to get the same inside shots and rebounds against bigger and more athletic players on the next level ...

Notes: Led the nation in rebounding as a freshman and sophomore and has increased upon those numbers as a junior. (Could be the first player to ever lead the nation in rebounding 3 consecutive seasons.)
