Filip Petrusev is a skilled big man that can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he played very well as a sophomore this season. Petrusev is a skilled low post scorer that can score with his back to the basket, and he will frequently score on rolls to the rim. He also is a good rebounder, and he tends to be in the right spots defensively. On the other hand, he will need to continue to work on his face-up game and show that he can guard upper-echelon players in games. Currently, Petrusev is a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
