Projected Draft Range: Mid to Late 1st Round
Solid shooter, especially from deep

Very good athlete
Can struggle to consistently create his own shot
Needs to improve his free throw shooting
Needs to improve his rebounding
Can be undisciplined defensively
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 Agbaji had a solid junior year, and he showed significant improvement as a shooter and defender during the 2020-21 season. He is a talented player that can tend to be too inconsistent in games. He played very well at the 2021 State Farm Champions Classic, as he scored 29 points in a win over Michigan State, and he currently projects to go in the mid to late first round range for the 2022 draft.
