Evaluation: The future Wildcat is a long, athletic big man who loves running the floor and excels in transition. He’s a great shot-blocker who is a presence on the defensive end, although there is room for improvement in terms of his rebounding ability. A couple of things he could work include his strength and ability to score in the paint with his back to the basket. He’s the typical athletic high school big man in the sense that his defensive game is far above his offensive game right now, although I’m sure that will change once Cauley-Stein gets to Lexington.
