Excellent athlete and finisher. Really quick off the second and third hop. Boards and blocks shots.


Quotes

Will be drafted more for his offense than his defense. If he puts on a few more pounds of muscle (getting closer to 240) and improves his defensive skill, he could be a solid backup big man.
