Jay Huff is a tall, mobile center that could project into a rim protector role in the NBA. He can rebound and block shots, and he also excels at scoring around the basket. He also has shown a developing outside shot. He will need to stay out of foul trouble and get more consistent playing time in games. Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the upcoming draft.
