Draft Prospect Outlook 

Strengths: 

Elite athlete with pogo sticks for legs; good rim-runner who finishes well; instinctive shot-blocker


Weaknesses: 

Very raw on both ends, lacking feel; average rebounder; sometimes lacks physicality needed from NBA center; not a shot creator; shaky jump shot and post play


Deeper Dive:

• Combine: Only participated in interviews, no on-court testing; 7-foot-3.5 inch wingspan

• Pro comparison: Nerlens Noel

• Grew 10 inches from freshman year in high school to senior year in high school


• Didn't start a game as a high school basketball player until his senior year


• Played primarily football in high school as a receiver until massive growth spurt led him to quit for basketball
