Evaluation: The future Longhorn has a great combination of size and strength in addition to good length. He rebounds well, blocks shots and is a presence inside. Ridley also has great hands and has been working on his conditioning and displays a good motor. He has the basic low-post scoring moves down, although that is certainly an area where he can work to improve. Passing is also something that isn’t so much a weakness, but something that could be beneficial to him since he will naturally attract double teams. He can also continue to develop his conditioning and get in good shape.
