Evaluation: Baru is a great rebounder and shot-blocker who has a clear passion for the game. His motor is never-ending and he runs the floor well too. He can also play facing up or with his back to the basket. He needs to develop a better post- and mid-range game to improve his offense and get a little stronger (although he already has good strength) to reach his rebounding potential. Look for Baru to mature into a Kenneth Faried-type player who dominates the glass and defensive end for Charleston.
