Adama Sanogo is a strong, mobile big man that can score and defend in the post. He is comfortable scoring with his back to the basket, and he has great strength to be able to get deep position down low on offense, and he also can prevent opponents from getting great position when defending them. He still needs to extend his shooting range and show that he can defend quicker players, but Sanogo is a productive player that projects to be a second round prospect for the 2023 draft.
