2015 Jordan Brand Classic International Game: Top Prospects
April 17, 2015

Ikechukwu Obiagu, 7-0, C, Green Forest Christian Nigeria, 1998

Strengths
-Elite physical tools.
-Outstanding body. Developed frame. Long arms. Huge hands. Moves really well for a player his size. Can really run the floor.
-Excellent shot blocker. Good instincts and timing. High effort-level. Blocks jump shots.
-Good post defender due to his size, strength and length. Works hard to deny post entries. Gets steals.
-Rebounding potential given his physical tools and effort level.
-Knows who he is. Doesn't try to play outside of himself.

Weaknesses
-Doesn't look his age. May be 2-3 years older?
-Lacks touch around the rim. Can make an occasional jump hook but it's far from reliable. Not much of a scorer in the half court.
-Bad hands. Struggles catching around the rim. Gets the ball ripped out of his hands on rebounds.
-Poor mechanics on his jump shot. Big hitch. Not a threat outside of 15 feet.
-Gets knocked off balance too often for his size.

Outlook Obiagu showed his potential as a high-level rim protector and defender by racking up a handful of blocks and steals. He is very limited offensively but given his tantalizing physical tools and defensive potential, the 7-footer is certainly worth tracking.
