Ikey Obiagu, Nigeria, Center, Class of 2017, Florida State, 18.7
-Ridiculous physical specimen. Over 7'1 in shoes with an impressive 241 pound frame that will continue to fill out. Has a 7'5 ¼ wingspan and 9'4 ½ standing reach that are both elite level measures for a center at any level of basketball. Will get looks from the NBA off his tools alone.
-Rangy defensive player. Covers ground and can protect the rim with his length
-Still new to the game
-Mechanical athletically. Runs with very short strides. Doesn't possess great coordination. Often a split-second late with his reaction time.
-Very limited offensive player. Struggles to make basic catches. Doesn't have much touch around the basket. Somewhat of a black hole ones he gets the ball inside the post
-Has a hard time picking up plays. Lacks experience and feel in half-court offenses. Didn't always look very locked in. Game moves too fast for him
-Has potential defensively, but can get schooled at times by more experienced players with shot-fakes.
Outlook Obiagu was somewhat of a surprise selection, as he isn't considered in the same tier of prospects that normally gets invited to this event. Those concerns proved to be accurate, as he had a very difficult time in the week of practices leading up the actual game, and then went scoreless in ten minutes of action. Obiagu possesses tremendous physical gifts, but is obviously still at a very early stage of his development, and was put in a difficult situation being asked to hold his own in this setting.
