Named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and was placed on the AP`s All-America Third Team following his junior campaign in 2009-10, prompting him to forgo his final year and enter the NBA Draft...Aldrich, who set a new Kansas single-season record with 123 blocked shots this past season, was also an honorable mention AP All-American as a sophomore...Was one of only two players in the Big 12 to average a double-double in 2008-09, the other being Oklahoma`s Blake Griffin, with his 14.9 points and 11.1 rebounds per contest as a mere sophomore in one of the more competitive basketball conferences in
the nation...Has shown dedication off the court in improving his athleticism, as he was named the National Strength and Conditioning Association All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year in March of 2009...Relentless around the basket at both ends of the floor, Aldrich doesn`t back down from a challenge and, in fact, often goes looking for them even if it doesn`t always work in his favor...Runs the floor well for someone his size, Aldrich has great mechanics and footwork in the paint on offense, but could stand more development on his offensive moves outside of the lane.
