Summary:

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.
