Notes: 2012: Selected by Portland in 1st round (11th overall) of the NBA Draft.
All-Big Ten Honorable Mention in 2012 as a sophomore after averaging 13.6 points per game which included six 20-point games...Third leading rebounder in the Big Ten in 2012 with 8.2 per contest and leader in the league in blocks with 1.9 per game...Further development is very possible as he blossomed into a lottery prospect after seeing very limited action during his freshman season...Exhibited the ability to take over games at times, but consistency is still an issue...Excellent length and height for the next level...Athletic and
smart player with the ability to contribute on both ends of the floor...Has rare combination of coordination and seven-foot plus height...Will need to get stronger to compete with NBA centers in the post...Lacks a true go-to-move and takes plays off...Has the ability to do a number of different things well but does not possess an outstanding facet to his game.
