When a player at a big program stays around for four years, it usually means he's just not that great an NBA prospect.
He's only about 6'6" and not very athletic. Couldn't deal at all with the length or Louisville's big guy, who is incredibly raw.
He could be DeJuan Blair, which is an ok upside, though he lacks Blair's freakishly long arms. Backup frontcourt player who doesn't really have a position. Has decent range on his shot, works hard, strong body, which as a package will help interest NBA teams.
Thinking more of like Leonard. I'd put him at the SF not the PF/C like Blair.
Guys who go hard and bang will always have a place in the NBA. He's not a lotto pick, but he is a solid player.
