KC Ndefo is an athletic, energetic forward that helped lead Saint Peter’s to get to the Elite Eight of the 2022 NCAA Tournament. He is a solid interior defender that can block many shots, and he will also attack the basket to score and get assists for his team. He will need to improve his jump shot, and he also may need to adjust to playing the small forward position at higher levels. He will need to expand his game on the offensive end, but his motor, intangibles, and feel for the game could enable him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA someday.
