PHYSICAL AND MENTAL
Carries himself like pro already...plays hard all the time...leads team by hustle and hard work...limited jumping ability...runs floor just O.K.

BALL SKILLS
Not looking to pass it much...even when double-teamed, still tries to get it to hoop...not even going to try [to dribble] vs. pressure

OFFENSE
An inside guy...strong on low block, but posts with arms, not body...finishes well with guys hanging on him...loves to go over left shoulder...unwilling to use right hand

REBOUNDING
Good at tipping the ball to open area to get board...not exceptional leaper, so is intelligent rebounder...showing better aggressiveness at both ends

DEFENSE
Will step in, take charge...weak attempt at show/recover...not a shot blocker...indifferent on defense...adequate in defensive transition but could be quicker, being only 6'7"

KNOWLEDGE
Has a good feel for the game...makes solid decisions most of time...doesn't do anything to rock boat and is pretty quiet

STRENGTHS
Strong inside...able to finish in traffic and convert free throws if fouled...gets big numbers on glass even with lack of height and jumping ability...gives everything he has all the time...not deterrent to team scheme

WEAKNESSES
Defensive drive...doesn't block shots...needs to run better and develop perimeter/in-between game...has to play power forward at 6'7"
