Draft Notes

Auburn lands a big time center prospect who left UNC after his freshman season. Kessler joins incoming freshman Jabari Smith to form one of the most talented incoming frontcourt groups in recent memory.

Kessler is emerging as a big time center prospect who contributes on both ends of the floor. He has a big impact on the defensive end thanks to his great size and good defensive instincts.

On the offensive end he plays like a combo forward trapped in a centers body. Kessler can handle in the open court and break the defender down off the dribble. He’s got a nice touch around the rim and from mid range and should continue to expand his range over the next few years.
