NBA Comparison: Jerome Moiso/Chris Gatling

Strengths: Skilled power forward with a long, lean frame. Has a 7’4 1/2 wingspan … Nicknamed "The Nightmare" for his demonic shot blocking prowess (3.7 per game as junior) … Views swatting shots as an art form – always taking proper angles, never leaving his feet until his opponent does, can block shots with either hand and keeps balls in play … Tremendous offensive rebounder as a result of his length and quickness off the floor (3.6 off, 9.8 total) … Exhibits solid agility on the perimeter, able to stay in front of quicker guards on pick and roll switches … Moves his feet well and lateral quickness is much improved … Has made dramatic developments in his offensive repertoire since his sophomore season at Michigan … Much more aggressive looking to score (14 ppg) … Shows the ability to face up opponents with his quick first step and new and improved ball handling skills … His passing ability and court vision have been a revelation, often acting as a facilitator in Baylor’s offense (2.7 ast) … Reads double teams well and finds the open man. His post skills are on the incline exhibiting solid foot work and a series of quick moves … Prefers a one power dribble jump hook. Has nice touch on his short range and mid-range jumper … Has shown flashes of range this season knocking down 7 three pointers. Shooting form is near textbook … Runs the floor very well for a big. His work ethic can be easily detected in his development as a player in a short period of time … Has developed some face the basket skills, but will never be confused for being a small forward …

Weaknesses: Despite improvements, still has a very raw offensive game … Has the skills, but many subtleties are not yet second nature. Not smooth in the post, often looking uncomfortable and indecisive on what move to attempt … What is his offensive game? Can do a variety of things, but has no real go to move … Has struggled with turnovers problems, attempting low percentage passes and overdribbling (2.4 to) … Needs to add weight and get stronger, especially in his lower body … Has difficulty holding his ground on defense and maintaining interior position on offense … Does not finish plays through contact … Only attempted 4.5 free throws per game last season … A solid run/jump athlete but lacks explosiveness. Effort on the defensive backboard can be questioned- lackadaisical on box out assignments quite frequently … Does not play with a killer instinct and needs to get tougher … Will turn 23 in May making his upside somewhat limited. Ability to add significant strength at this stage of his development is doubtful.
