2021 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 93
Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent mid-range shooter
Needs to improve his face-up game
Needs to improve his playmaking skills
Can be too passive on offense
Needs to improve his defense
After having put forth two nondescript seasons at Wake Forest, Olivier Sarr had a solid junior season for them before transferring to Kentucky. He is an athletic, energetic big man that can score in the post and grab rebounds, but he will need to improve his playmaking skills and he will also need be a more disciplined defender in games. Sarr tends to pick up quick fouls, which may prevent him from being on the floor for long stretches.
Sarr turned in a disappointing senior season at Kentucky, but he also showed a promising ability to knock down outside shots in a limited sample. His ability to score, combined with his stretch big potential could make him an option for NBA teams to consider late in the 2021 draft.
