Outlook: Ultra productive big man in the DeJuan Blair mold. Was a major factor in his AAU team winning the Nike EYBL playing against significantly older competition. Not the most athletic big man around, but looks destined to have a great college career at the very least. Appears to be a much better prospect than the recruiting services are giving him credit for.
