Biography: Ogilvy decided to skip his final season at Vanderbilt and enter the draft despite decreased production each season ear of his college career. The native of Australia averaged 15.3 points and 6.7 rebounds with the Commodores, but his scoring average dipped from 17.0 as a freshman to 13.4 in 2009-10. A three-time All-SEC performer, Ogilvy leaves Vanderbilt as the school's all-time leader in free throws made (471) and blocks per game (1.51). He joined Will Perdue as the only players in Vanderbilt history with more than 1,000 points and 100 blocked shots. Ogilvy's greatest impact in college came during his first season, when he set a school freshman record with 578 points and led first-year SEC players in scoring. He helped lead the Commodores to the NCAA tournament in 2008 and 2010, averaging 15.0 points and 6.0 rebounds in two losses. A back-to-the-basket center with good mobility and vision, Ogilvy has a nice array of moves in the post and has shown a knack for getting to the free-throw line. He rebounding, however, is underwhelming and he did little during college to shed the soft label that often follows big men into the NBA. He doesn't have great fundamentals and possesses only average foot speed, making him a mediocre defender. He could help his draft prospects considerably by developing his lower body strength and adding some bulk to his frame. Because of his size and polished post game, Ogilvy will draw interest, but his pro potential appears limited. Unless he surprises at the pre-draft workouts, Ogilvy is likely to be a second-round selection.
