Kid is going to be a damn good player on the next level. He has a great frame, a nice skillset and seems to have a fantastic work ethic/attitude. Was the best player on the floor tonight against Baylor and has really come into his own once he became a starter. Averaging 17/12 (on 54% shooting) a game so far this year. A top 5-10 pick in the 2012 draft.

Yeah, a lot of people seem to be all over him. Can he play in the post and rebound in the NBA or is he more of a face up 4. Sorry, I really haven't been watching much CBB this year.

He can do a little of both, but preferably down in the post. He is one of only 3 guys to average 17/12 over the past 15 years in CBB (Tim Duncan and Blake Griffin being the others). He also had a couple of face-up plays where he made a move and finished last night. Believe he also hit a mid-range jumper or two. Kid is a beast. Would definitely take him over Sullinger for the NBA level, without thinking twice.

Who do you think is a good NBA past or present comparison for him?

Millsap. Maybe Taj Gibson. Undersized but, in the right system can be productive.
