Kerry Blackshear is an athletic, skilled big man that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He has flown under the radar despite having averaged roughly 15 points and 7 1/2 rebounds per game last season on a solid NCAA tournament team, but Blackshear is an intriguing prospect whose mobility combined with his ability to put the ball in the hoop could make him an option for NBA teams to consider in the mid to late second round range of the 2020 draft.
