Solid rebounder
Decent defensive player
Good shot blocker

Summary:

Brandon McCoy is an athletic big man that had a solid freshman year.  One of the highlights of his season included terrific, 33-point and 10-rebound performance against Arizona.

​On the other hand, he may need to add more perimeter skills on offense, and he may likely need to improve his position defense.  Right now, McCoy is a talented player that could potentially end up going in the late first round of the upcoming draft.
