Day’Ron Sharpe is an athletic, energetic big man that could project to be a solid rim protector in the NBA. He is a strong finisher around the basket, and he excels at scoring in the paint. Plus, he is also a solid rebounder and defender that can protect the paint for his team. He will need to work on his face-up game and passing ability, but his ability to make plays on both ends of the court could enable him to be a second round pick in the 2021 draft.
