Ochai Agbaji is a very athletic, high-motor swingman that could project to be a solid role player in the NBA. He will make a lot of hustle plays on both ends of the floor, and he also is a versatile player that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.
He’s been inconsistent with his jump shot in the past, but so far Agbaji is off to a strong start during his junior season, as he is shooting and defending well on the court right now. He is a talented player that projects to go in the late first to the second round range for the 2021 draft.
