Here is what NBADraft.net had to say about his game:
Athletic combo forward with an intriguing skill-set … Runs the court extremely well and is a frequent target for lob passes in transition … Solid size for either forward position, standing about 6’8″ with a long wingspan … Displays the quickness/versatility to guard multiple positions at the next level … Blocks a lot of shots (averaging 3.0 per game at the time this profile was written) and creates a lot of turnovers … Really tough to score against at the college level, and has the potential to be an even better defender with added experience … Is a relentless rebounder both offensively and defensively … Already has a 20-20 game under his belt
