Udeh Jr. is a burly, strong and powerful interior force who has some very clearly defined roles on the court and does a great job of playing within those roles.
He’s a great rebounder and interior defender who changes the game even if he doesn’t fill up the box score.
On offense he shows really good awareness and skill as a screener and is always a lob threat rolling to the basket. He doesn’t’ need touches on offense but helps the team in a multitude of ways.
He’s a physical specimen with incredible brute strength and excellent agility for a player his size.
Watch for Udeh Jr. to become a real force in college basketball over the coming years.
second round pick in the 2024 NBA Draft or 2025 NBA Draft
