Excels at scoring on the move

Very good free throw shooter

Sets good screens for his teammates

Adequate rebounder

Fairly good defensive player

Cons:

Not an elite shot blocker

Classic tweener

Late bloomer

Summary:

Isaiah Hicks is an athletic big man that has shown an adequate ability to garner scores inside the paint.  He has had a solid senior season, as he has been an integral role player on one of the top teams in the country.

But a poor 1 for 12 showing against Oregon may have highlighted his flaws as a player, as he struggled to create his own shots or make them, and he really did not play well on that day.  He may also be a classic tweener, which could hurt his stock.  Still, he has played fairly well in the other games, and he has also fared well at the NBA Draft Combine, as he could be a potential second round pick this year.
