Weight: 270
College: Georgetown
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 7/25/1997

Pros:

Fairly good low post scorer
Adequate shooter for a big man, has stretch big potential
Decent scorer off the dribble
Very good free throw shooter
Adequate passer for a big man
Adequate rebounder
Decent shot blocker
Mobile for a player his size
Great size and strength to play center
Has long arms

Cons:

Inconsistent shooter

Summary:

Jessie Govan is a big-bodied center that may be able to excel as a scorer at the next level.  His ability to score from all over the floor has NBA scouts and teams intrigued, but he will need to improve his rebounding, and he also has to stay away from foul trouble.​

If he can show teams that he can excel when the pace of the game really picks up, that could really help his draft stock. Right now, he may end up being a potential second round pick  in the upcoming draft.
