I get that take the more I look at his college film... what I dont understand is why he was a 5 star recruit won 3 state titles as the best player on the team was regarded as the best player in Alabama a top 6 recruit at pf and why he rarely ever jumped out of the gym in college & just high enough to dunk when he had an open lane. Rarely tries to dunk through any defender big or small unless they are falling away. It is almost like he was afraid to or something indicating a hidden injury possibility or maybe just paranoid of injury before getting paid.
He cant shoot well enough to be a first round pick as is but he should be a consideration early 2nd unless his power inside out game is too limited for a team needing shooters in the front court, but at the same time he uses solid body control is built well with strong body etc. I think the heavy foot thing could be put to rest if there was a combine but that is looking unlikely.
Personally dont see much of a prospect without a lot more development and he definitely could go undrafted with no workouts or combine to dispell these concerns about him, but the blueprint is decent if they can find a path to building him up and I could see any team taking a flier from 28-60 depending on predraft answers to questions that right now are keeping him essentially slept on.
I guess explosive was the wrong word to use, so I will go with noplo-gadget
