Mock:  15

Strengths: 6’9 big man … Good length with a 7’1.5 wingspan … Fluid athlete and very coordinated. Runs the floor well and consistently. Gets off the ground well from a standstill … Shows a nice shooting stroke from outside and stretches the floor. Shoots well from midrange as well. Reliable free throw shooter. Shot 84.1% from the foul line over the Nike EYBL … Can score inside and out. Finishes well within close with accurate touch. Uses glass when appropriate. Shot 57.4% from the floor over the Nike EYBL and 67.5% at the NBPA Top 100 … Shows some ability to put the ball on the floor and shoot off the dribble … Solid passing instincts. Uses touch passes on occasions … Good offensive rebounder with 2.1 over the Nike EYBL. Reliable cleaning up around the basket … Alert. Spaces the floor and positions himself well on both ends, tends to be in the right place at the right time … Doesn’t force his impact … Good defensive tools and instincts. Light on his feet. Good timing as a shot blocker. Averaged a block per game over the Nike EYBL … Provides tools and skillset that fit the mold of a modern day big man …

Weaknesses: Has much room to get stronger, especially in the lower body. Only weighs around 200 pounds. Doesn’t handle contact well … Has room to expand his post-game. Accurate in the paint but doesn’t make many moves or counters to get his shot off and it will be an adjustment when defenders match his size … Good on the offensive glass but can improve as a rebounder overall. Only averaged 5.6 over the Nike EYBL … Can cut down on the 2.1 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL. Had a few games with four or five …

Outlook: Incoming Maryland freshman … Scored 12 points while shooting 6-9 and blocked two shots in the McDonald’s All-American Game … Finished with 14 points, nine rebounds (five offensive), and three blocks in the Jordan Brand Classic … Averaged 10.9 points per game over the Nike EYBL …
