Draft Notes

Tall, lean, skilled and lethal from 3pt land, Huff will get a long look from NBA teams thanks to his ability to space the floor and guard at the rim.

Huff posted great shooting splits as a senior (58/39/84) thanks to his great shooting ability and smart shot selection. His 3pt shot at his height is a dangerous weapon and gives him a clear NBA role.

Huff averaged 2.6 blocks per game as a senior and is very adept at defending at the rim. He’s a bit lacking in bulk and might get pushed around early in his career but shows a lot of promise as a shot blocker. He’s got decent versatility on D, although he won’t be confused for Clint Capela any time soon.
