Clifford Omoruyi is an athletic, energetic big man that could project to be a solid rim protector in the NBA. He is a rangy shot blocker that excels at protecting the paint to help his team defensively, and he is also a good athlete that can finish plays above the rim.
He will need to expand upon his skill set offensively, and he will need to add strength to be able to handle defending stronger opponents in the post, but his athleticism and defensive potential could help him project into a defensive specialist role in the NBA one day.
