NBA Comparison: N/A

Strengths: A high IQ big man, with a nice mix of inside and outside moves … Has a textbook jumpshot; great balance, smooth release, and he is not afraid to let it fly from any distance … For a big, his percentages are very impressive: 48% FG, 39% 3PT, 91% FT … At times he shows great flashes of brilliance, facing up, putting the ball on the floor and attacking his man … On the low block, he has a pretty effective sweeping right hook to go along with a soft touch around the hoop … He is a decent athlete, and is very surprising due to his length and ability to get off the ground quickly … Very dangerous as an on and off ball screener, because of his outside shot and because he reads the action well, popping out or cutting to the basket … His length gives him the ability to block shots ... Due to Texas' overall talent level, it's possible he's under-utilized and able to be more porductive but hasn't been due to lack of opportunities ...

Weaknesses:
Has yet to prove that he is a reliable and consistent performer … For all his talents and versatility, he has not been able to shake the soft label because of his lackadaisical play … Seems to be satisfied with a minor role on the team, not only is he taking less shots per game this season, but his rebound numbers (a poor 3.6 per) are down and most worrisome is the fact that his playing time is down from last season as well … Other than his shooting touch, he is just decent in other facets of his game, which could spell trouble at the next level … He is limited with his back to the basket and his subpar perimeter game will make it difficult for him to get his shot off … Defensively he is also a mismatch because post players will be able to outmuscle him inside, and he does not have great footspeed to contend with the wing players … He settles from the outside way too often and he does not like contact, this is highlighted by a measly 1 free throw attempt per game … He is a 5th year senior, so many of his shortcoming are more serious because he has had some time to improve but has failed to do so …
