Updated on 1/25/21.  Written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-11
Weight: 240
College: Rutgers
Classification: Freshman
Birthdate: 10/11/2001

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Adequate low post scorer
Tremendous free throw generator
Good rebounder
Fairly good shot blocker
Solid athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his face-up game
Needs to improve his free throw shooting
Can be too passive on offense
Needs to improve his playmaking skills
May be fairly raw offensively
Can have lapses defensively
Needs to add strength

Summary:

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.
