Khem Birch

Name: Khem Birch

Overall Rank: #8

Position (Rank): Power Forward (#3)

College: Pittsburgh

High School: Notre Dame Prep (Massachusetts)

Height: 6’9

Weight: 210

Evaluation: He is a monster shot-blocker and simply dominates on the defensive end. He is very long and can cover a lot of ground quickly which makes you think you can get a shot off before he swats it into the stands. Birch is also a consistent rebounder on the offensive end which allows him to get a lot of easy put-backs and tip-ins. He runs the floor very well and always finishes above the rim as well. One area he needs to improve on includes his post moves on the block although he has already displayed a better interior scoring skill set as well as his strength. Birch can also improve on his mid-range game but the bottom line is he will earn a spot in Pittsburgh’s starting lineup and will bring a great defensive game with him.

Notes: Canadian, committed to Pitt in September, 2010

Awards: 2011 McDonald’s All-American, 2011 Jordan Brand Classic participant, 2011 Nike Hoop Summit participant
