Willie Cauley-Stein – 7’0, 244 lbs. Center (Kentucky, Jr.)

Strengths: A potential defensive juggernaut with impressive foot speed, length, athleticism, timing and overall defensive instincts. Ready to make a difference on that side of the floor right away. Improved offensively over the last three years at Kentucky, even though his points per game never jumped off the page. Finishes strong around the rim.

Weaknesses: Still has a lot of developing to do to offensively. Effort on the glass is inconsistent at times.
