Micah Potter is a mobile, skilled big man that can shoot and score the basketball. After having played his first two seasons at Ohio State, he then transferred to Wisconsin and was quite effective for them, and he was able to help lead them to get to the 2021 NCAA Tournament.
He is a stretch big that can knock down threes to space the floor, and he also has solid footwork and shooting touch to consistently score in the post. He will need to improve his rebounding and defense, but his ability to knock down shots could enable him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA.
