Emmanuel Akot is a tall, mobile point forward that played at Arizona before transferring to Boise State. He has helped Boise State get to the 2022 NCAA Tournament this year. Recently, he announced his decision to transfer to Memphis. He didn’t post gaudy stats, but he is a tall playmaker whose versatility could earn him looks from NBA teams in the 2023 draft.
