He's the back up center from Kentucky. He has good size but that's all I can find out. That, and he once brought down the backboard in high school. It was a impressive play. Defensive rebound, coast to coast through some traffic, and BOOM! He seems like a guy that would be best served to stay a year longer but with his size and age(6'10" and 19) he'll get drafted.
Does anyone have the skinny on him?

He will get picked in the late second round most likely. I mean the guys is beyond being a project. Can't do anything on offense and does enough on defense to look good and thats only cuz of his height and athleticism.

He should stay a year, but he will get picked this draft so I think thats why he declared.

actually Most mock drafts put him in the first round
Draftexpress put him as the 13th pick for the Raptors (http://www.draftexpress.com/nba-mock-draft/2010/)
in NBAdraft.net he is the 20 pick (http://www.nbadraft.net/2010mock_draft)
I know nothing about him,didn't see anything but some videos in his high school ,I hear he is very talented actually but I think that won't be enough to be selected b4 25th because that will be a big risk for any team tbh

^ I wouldn't risk a 13th pick on him.

He's probably worth late first to 2nd round.

he averaged 3 pts and 3 rpg in college. Why go to the NBA when you weren't even good enough to be on the floor for your college team?

ESPN has him ranked 15th. That's way too high for a guy who didnt even get significant minutes in college. Then again he was playing behind Patty Pat and Cousins, both lottery picks.

He made what I think was one of the dumbest decisions in college basketball history by declaring.

He's size guy that shows athleticism. If he stayed with everyone else on the team going he could have been the "stud" for the Wildcats this year. Who know's who was in this guys ear to go pro. Could have made a lot of money next year though. Maybe he knew Calipari was leaving. Any believe him when he said he was staying?

Not impressed with his draft measurements:
6' 8.75" barefoot
6' 9.5" w/shoes

He also ballooned to 270lbs while sitting with his knee injury, up from his normal 255lbs. So obviously that throws a conditioning red flag.
