Nathan Knight is an agile, skilled center that can score and rebound the basketball.  He does a good job of taking his man off the dribble to score on quick drives to the basket, and he also will run the floor to get scores at the rim.  He also was named a finalist for the 2020 Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award this year.

He’s a relative unknown as he plays in a small D1 school in the CAA, but Knight has consistently put up strong numbers throughout his career.  He played very well against Oklahoma, but not quite as well against Stanford, but Knight is a skilled big man that could be a potential second round pick in the 2020 draft.
