Draft Notes

Omoruyi is a super raw prospect but one with elite physical tools and a chance to develop into a big time center.

He’s a rim protector and interior defender who strikes fear into opposing drivers with his shot-blocking ability and shear size and physical presence.

At this point his offensive game is limited but he’ll earn his pay at the next level by defending, running the floor hard and dunking the ball. His mid range jumper isn’t broken and could become a useful weapon in the near future.
