Cliff Alexander – 6’9, 254 lbs. (Kansas, Fr.)

Strengths: A beast of a big man who knows how to use his strength and is not afraid to mix it up in the interior. Athletic. Good rebounder and shot blocker. Mobile. Long.

Weaknesses: Feel for the game is still developing; he mainly relies on his physical gifts. Limited offensively and a virtual-non threat outside of the painted area. A little undersized. Didn’t play as much as scouts were hoping he would due to eligibility issues and Coach Bill Self being hesitant to play him big minutes early on because of his rawness.
