Kennedy Meeks is a highly productive big man that can get many points and rebounds in the paint for his team this year. He is a physical bruiser that also possesses fairly solid playmaking and defensive skills.
Right now, he is having a solid senior season, but his draft stock has not been very high all year long. But with his skill set, he could end up being a good pick for an NBA team in the second round range of the upcoming draft.
