Freddie Gillespie is an athletic, energetic big man that can finish plays around the basket, and he also can rebound and block shots.  He is undersized to play inside, so he will likely need to improve his jump shot and perimeter skills, but he had a solid senior season, and he could end up being a potential second round pick in the 2020 draft.
