Weaknesses: Is still not ready for the next level, could use an extra year or so of college to mature further and develop his game Does not have the great leaping ability that so many other young 4 men in the league possess Although he shows a strong preference towards operating from the high post, his almost non-existent jump shot and subpar ballhandling will initially restrict him to the low blocks The limited range on his jumpshot can be attributed primarily to his flawed mechanics, as he does not square up to the basket and his elbow goes out too far on the release His touch around the hoop is very unrefined and he struggles to catch passes while on the move, which raises some questions about his hands He was able to get away with a lot offensively in college because he could always overpower the defender with his strength, but until he develops a dependable and consistent post up game he will struggle against the more athletic/aggressive players in the league Although he has been able to limit his fouls, his defensive game has shown minimal growth He is very undisciplined, leaving his feet to try and block every shot that is put up, he also gets out of position frequently, allowing his man to score with ease
Weaknesses: Needs to develop his offensive post moves Must learn better footwork inside on both ends of the floor At times he appears to have mental lapses Needs to gain better focus for entire ball games Must learn how to use his great strength without drawing fouls. Improved footwork and concentration on fundamentals will help him. Not falling for ball fakes Can dominate opponents with sheer athleticism, but that wont be the case in the ACC next year, must gain better skill level Has a tendency to wander away from the basket for mid range jumpers, but is more effective using his strength inside His heavy legs give him great strength inside, but limit his lateral foot speed and may eventually slow him down some in transition
