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 season, and he showed significant improvement as a shooter and defender this year.  He is a talented player that can tend to be too inconsistent in games, but currently, he projects to be a second round prospect in the 2022 draft.
