Pros:

Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Adequate low post scorer
Tremendous free throw generator

Solid defender
Gifted shot blocker
Solid athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his face-up game
Can struggle to score in traffic
Can be too passive on offense
Needs to improve his playmaking skills

Can have lapses defensively

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, but he may be an underrated prospect that could swiftly move up draft boards if he plays well at Rutgers for the 2020-21 season.
