2002 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Wonderful shot blocker has long arms and great anticipation skills when defending opposing players … Offensively he has a soft touch around the basket capable of converting tip-ins and soft finger rolls … Mobile runs the court well although not a speedster by any means … Has excellent shot selection simply knows his limits offensively and doesn’t try to do what he can’t … Hustles on the glass because of this and his long arms he has become a very good rebounder … Work ethic is excellent as he has improved in every area from inconsistency to adding weight … Decent court awareness recognizes most double teams as a result he rarely gets caught in them … For his size he is a good ball handler as he is pretty mobile with the ball in the interior … Possesses good interior post footwork this is one of the reasons why he shoots such a high percentage on his shoots …

Weakness: While he is solid offensively with his back to the basket he could stand to improve on facing the basket more … Needs to add more upper body strength as sometimes he isn’t strong enough to finish the play after taking contact … Must be more disciplined on defense as sometimes he gets so caught up in blocking shots he gets out of position to rebound … Could stand to improve on adding a consistent fade-away jumper to his game … Poor post passer as he has that black hole thing going on once the ball goes in rarely does it come out … More range on his shot would benefit him greatly as he is only consistent from about 12 feet out …
