Summary:

Ike Anigbogu is a very athletic big man that is projected to be a potential first round pick for either the 2017 draft or sometime down the road.  He can finish plays around the basket, rebound, and block shots, but he may still be a bit of a project because his offensive skills are raw.​

He missed some time early this season due to a knee injury, so he ended up missing valuable time that could have allowed him to get plenty of more meaningful minutes at UCLA.  As he has not seen consistent playing time so far, Anigbogu may likely need another year before declaring for the NBA draft.
