Overview
A high level prospect who has the potential to become a first round pick. Nigerian born player who is honing his craft in Texas, on his way to the NBA.

Projects as a defensive-focused big who might take a few years to develop (think Clint Capela) but could pay off down the line.

Strengths
Has excellent quickness and agility for a 6-11 player and makes the game look easy and effortless. Is super smooth with his movements and blows by defenders in the open court with his long strides and great speed.

A solid rim protector who will become even better at defending the paint once he fills out his form and gets stronger. Does the dirty work of rebounding, setting screens and diving to the rim.

Weaknesses
Still raw and undeveloped. Will have to continue to become a better outside shooter and work on his ball handling. Doesn't seem like a player who will help space the floor.

Is a good but not elite shot blocker and defender.

Comparisons
Bismack Biyombo

Projection: mid to late first round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft
