, ’s seven-foot, 19-year-old first-year center is currently the top favorite to be No. 1 in the season. . He currently has only five games in the NCAA and his numbers are not scandalous (12.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 3.4 blocks in 24.2 minutes of play), but they do begin to be an indication of what is expected of him in the future.

Some specialized websites compare it to Kevin Durant, among other things because of his physical appearance (very thin and with a large wingspan) and because of his great shot and his ability to move freely on both sides of the court.

Strengths

Thus, he is a very well coordinated player, of great scope, with ball handling, shooting and passing. He takes advantage of his height to be able to shoot over his defenders with great effectiveness, with good percentages in medium distance shots and in triples. He has the ability to dribble and is fast in transitions in attack and defense. Potential in pick & pop situations and under the basket.

Weaknesses

It needs to develop physically. Lacks the strength to defend opponents in the post. Playing contact in front of NBA players is not an option at this time. He has work ahead of him in the gym. He’s not fast defending the perimeter.
