Isaac Haas is a massive, big-bodied center that can provide points and rebounds in the paint to help his team. His terrific size and strength often gives the opposition fits, as they often have trouble guarding him in the post, but his lack of mobility combined with that there are so many more talented big men in the NBA could make him struggle more at the next level.
Right now, Haas will need to add more perimeter skills, as he must expand his shooting range and improve his playmaking ability. In addition, he will need to improve his conditioning. Recently, he is said to be possibly involved in a serious off-court incident, as that could significantly hurt his draft stock. He had an otherwise solid senior season, but issues regarding his mobility, if he can keep up in a faster-paced game, and his character could cause him to go undrafted.
