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 has showed significant improvement as a shooter and defender over the last two seasons. He played very well at the 2021 State Farm Champions Classic, as he scored 29 points in a win over Michigan State, and he had a tremendous season, which culminated in helping to lead Kansas to win the National Championship this year. Currently, he projects to go in the lottery in the 2022 draft.
