Jamarion Sharp is a very tall, mobile center that is one of the best shot blockers in college basketball.  He is one of the tallest draft prospects, and he could project to be a rim protector in the NBA.  On the other hand, he still has a ways to go offensively, as he rarely ever shoots the basketball, and he doesn’t often pick up assists.  Still, his tremendous size and shot blocking skills combined with having above average athletic gifts could make him an intriguing option for NBA teams to consider in the second round in the 2024 draft.
