Recruiting Rankings: 247: #68, ESPN: #84, Scout: #66, Rivals: #68

-Tremendous size. Measured over 7-1 in shoes
-Great frame. Will fill out substantially in time
-Useful player to have in a team's rotation due to rare physical attributes
-Can rotate for blocks and protect the basket

-Very limited offensively even at high school level
-Struggles to catch the ball cleanly
-Doesn't show much touch from the free throw line
-Coordination, awareness is poor
-Doesn't have great instincts or fundamentals

Outlook: Big man with impressive physical attributes. Would test well in a combine setting, but doesn't know have functional athleticism yet and struggles to translate his mobility to the basketball court yet. Looks like a lottery pick on first glance, but is light years away from being able to contribute at a high level. Will need plenty of time and patience.
