Draft Notes

Moussa is a very springy, quick-twitch athlete with great size and length. The Michigan commit projects as a possible first round pick in the 2022 NBA draft.

Moussa is a plus athlete for his size and is very coordinated with excellent agility. He plays like a big wing and can also do damage in the paint.

Moussa shows promise on the offensive end and is much more than just a post player. He can put the ball on the deck and go coast to coast with the dribble and has range on his jumper.

He shows good court awareness and ability to find the open man and really seems to understand team concepts and play within the flow of the game and within the flow of the offense.

Moussa isn’t a banger in the paint but he has some rim protection ability and is a very aware defender. He’s a good help defender and shows good reaction as a weak-side shot blocker.
