Declared for the 2009 NBA draft before deciding to return for his senior year at Texas...Another year of college ball seemed to pay off, as he was an All-Big 12 First Teamer in his final season...Finished his career at Texas with school records in rebounds, consecutive games played and games started...He also set the Big 12 record with 1,318 rebounds and 54 double- doubles...Improved throughout his career, and is ready to bring his skill set to the NBA...Has the perfect body type for his position at the next level, and
is extremely rangy with outstanding athletic ability...Runs the floor well and is a hard worker on the glass at both ends of the court...He can be a solid perimeter shooter, but can also get work done around the basket...Because of his size, strength and mobility, he will be a skilled defender at the NBA level...A liability at the foul line, posting a lackluster 63 percent effort in his career from the charity stripe.
