Summary:

Daniel Oturu is a tough, physical big man that can play with his back to the basket, and he can also finish plays at the rim to garner scores for his team.  He has been rebounding the ball very well, and he also can block shots to help his team protect the paint.  However, there are significant concerns about his mobility and if he can guard quicker players on the defensive end.  Right now, Daniel Oturu is a borderline second round candidate, as he could perhaps project into a backup center role in the NBA.
