Kyle Wiltjer

Name: Kyle Wiltjer

Overall Rank: #25

Position (Rank): Power Forward (#6)

College: Kentucky

High School: Jesuit (Oregon)

Height: 6’9

Weight: 221

Evaluation: Wiltjer is one of the best shooting big men in the class. He can knock down the three and hit mid-range jumpers where he is deadly on the high post. He is not very athletic or quick but he is a smart big-man who is a good rebounder as well. Wiltjer also passes well out of the low post and thrives in pick and roll situations and in transition. Although he is not a dominant scorer on the low post he does have a variety of moves that he can turn to. He has displayed a nice sky hook in the McDonald’s All-American game and Jordan Brand Classic as well. Where Wiltjer is weaker is his defense whether it’s on the low post or out on the perimeter. Most of the areas he needs to improve on are physical such as size, speed and strength rather than basketball skills.
