Draft Notes

A massive center with the brute force of an offensive lineman. Kofi made a good decision to return to Illinois for his sophomore season and will look to solidfy his status as a draft pick in 2021.

He’s got an old school type of game and isn’t a great fit in today’s NBA but he’s a unique player due to his size and strength. It’ll be interesting to see which skills he adds as he develops his game.
