Mark Vital

Updated on 4/6/21.  Written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-5
Weight: 250
College: Baylor
Classification: Fifth-Year Senior
Birthdate: 11/7/1996

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent playmaker
Good rebounder
Good defender
Good athlete
Very good motor

Cons:
Must extend his shooting range
Needs to improve his face-up game
Needs to expand upon his low post moves
Needs to improve his free throw shooting
Not an elite ball handler
Can be too passive on offense
Can tend to pick up quick fouls
Old for a draft prospect, may have limited upside

Summary:
Mark Vital is an athletic, high-motor forward that will constantly outwork his opponents on the glass and on the defensive end to help his team get rebounds and stops in games.  He’s not the most dynamic offensive player, but he is a blue-collar type of player that will get his team tough rebounds and he is also a good defensive player that can guard multiple positions.  He helped his team win the National Championship in 2021, and he currently projects to be a borderline second round candidate in the 2021 draft.
