Evaluation: Gathers is a DeJuan Blair type guy in the sense that he’s undersized and a great rebounder. He is very strong inside and has good touch around the basket. He also has good hands and is a good finisher, especially through contact. Gathers is productive in the mid-range game and is a good athlete. However, he could really improve on his counter-moves and extend his range further. He’s going to be undersized down low in college so it will be interesting to see how he manages.
