Scouting Report
Assets: Excellent on the boards and a regular threat for double-digit rebounds. A true low-post player with a classic center's mentality: feisty and gritty. Long, mobile, and very active defensively, poaching his share of blocks and steals.
Flaws: Still pretty raw offensively overall, and like many centers is a poor free-throw shooter. Can be foul-prone, and needs to add more bulk to his rangy frame for the NBA. Could also be a better passer.
Career Potential: Good defensive center with nice potential.
