Kyle Filipowski is a highly touted recruit that plays for Duke, and he helped them get to the 2023 NCAA Tournament. He is a skilled, energetic big man that can pass and handle the basketball, but he’s struggled with his outside shot and can struggle to guard quicker players at times. He is a mobile, high-motor big man that could end up being a first round pick in the 2024 draft.
