Connor Vanover is a very tall, energetic big man that can knock down jumpers, he also can block a lot of shots to help his team protect the paint. He previously played at California and Arkansas prior to transferring to Oral Roberts, and he had a solid season this year. He’ll need to add more muscle to his frame and will need to show that he can consistently play well against upper-echelon opponents, especially in faster-paced games, but Vanover is a mobile, high-motor player that could project into a backup center role in the NBA.
