NBA Comparison: Kurt Rambis

Strengths: A true workman, comes to play on every possession and is willing to do all the dirty work … He has a very strong body with a low center of gravity that allows him to clear space … On the O glass is where his greatest traits come to the forefront, his relentless approach and great anticipation allow him to grab rebounds that are even out of his initial rebounding zone … While the ball is in the air, he does not waste time by following its trajectory, but instead he is always in motion and getting to the highest percentage rebounding spots …

Weaknesses: At the end of the day, one has to wonder how effective a 6’7 PF with limited athleticism and offensive skill (50% FT shooter) can be at the next level … Most of his points come from his ability to crash the glass, or on broken plays, but he shows very little in terms of low post moves … For him to have any sort of chance, he needs to prove that he is a threat as a spotup shooter from midrange … Although his form looks fairly good, he has not been able to find any consistency … In the pick and roll oriented NBA, his value will drastically increase if he can become a threat from 15-17 feet …

Borko Popic – 6/21/2009

Strengths: Has the heart and hustle every coach looks for in a player. He earns everything he gets. He is the first player to the floor and even enjoys it. He takes pride in rebounding and it is his greatest ability on the court as of now. He is a great team player. He is very coach-able, as he was asked to defer to seniors Brandon Roy, Jamaal Williams, and Bobby Jones as a freshman. He is 67 but packs the muscle at 245 to bang with anyone in the country. He is good at finding holes in the defenses box outs and is rewarded with many offensive rebounds or tip-ins. He plays solid post defense, not going for pump fakes or getting beat off the dribble. He runs the floor very well and can finish lobs or tip-dunk missed layups on the fast break. His wide body is great for screens and he takes full advantage of it when doing so. He has good court awareness as he regularly slipped to the basket when the previously mentioned Roy and Williams were double teamed for easy baskets.

Weaknesses: Undersized at 6-7. Brockman lacks any reliable back to the basket move at this point. His jump hook is his best one-on-one move as of now. His 15-17 foot jumper started to fall more towards the end of the season, but definitely needs to improve, along with its consistency. He needs to improve his finishing in traffic. He is only a decent foul shooter. At times he can get lost in the flow of the game and not be heard from. He is not very quick on the perimeter, and is not a lock down defender. Brockman is not an explosive player, as he lacks shot-blocking ability. He would be a bit undersized at the NBA level.
Logan Lemberger – 4/7/2006

Notes: One of most heralded recruits in Washington history. He chose Washington over likes of Duke, North Carolina, and Arizona. He was named a McDonalds All-American as a senior in high school. He was named MVP of Black Coaches Association Classic in December 2005, which Washington won. He was also named to the PAC-10 All Freshman Team following the season.
