Eugene Omoruyi is a tough, physical forward that can shoot and score the basketball. He is having a solid senior season at Oregon, and he has been their leading scorer this year.
Omoruyi was never really an outside shooter at his previous school, Rutgers, but his newfound three-point shot has really elevated his offensive game to a whole another level. He doesn’t possess overwhelming athletic gifts, but his ability to knock down jump shots and score could enable him to be an effective rotation player in the NBA.
Side note: His birthdate is currently listed as unknown, but based on this Facebook post, Eugene Omoruyi’s birthdate is likely to be on 2/13/1998.
