Summary:

Amida Brimah is a defensive center prospect that brings a nice combination of size, athletic ability, and shot blocking prowess to his team.  He was the defensive anchor of the 2014 National Championship team, so he may have the requisite skills to be a defensive specialist in the NBA.​

On the other hand, he needs to greatly refine his offensive skills, and he must commit himself more to the boards.  If he can significantly improve upon his weaknesses, he could solidify a spot to be drafted in June.
