Evaluation: Plumlee is an athletic seven-footer who runs the floor very well. He is a good shot-blocker and rebounder and often alters shots even if he can’t get his hands on them. He also has good hands and a few different moves he can use to score in the low post. Plumlee can hit the mid-range jumper with needed time and space as well. The biggest area Plumlee can improve upon is his consistency since he can go long periods of time without being a factor. However, he has improved a lot over his senior year and will continue to get better when he steps onto the campus at Duke in Durham.
