A power forward who has a bevy of moves on the low block. He knows what his role is as a power forward, but likes to step out on the perimeter and keep the defense honest by knocking down long jumpers. He also is a fluid athlete who excels in transition.
Must put on weight if he is going to be an impact power forward at the next level. His shooting could use improvement, as could his ballhandling skills.
