Phil Cofer is a skilled, combo forward that can shoot the basketball.  He played very well against a tough Duke team, as he scored 28 points, and he made 6 three-pointers in a loss to them on the road.

He was granted a medical redshirt that enabled him to play this season, but after playing well last year, he’s missed a handful of games after being dealt with a nagging foot injury.  Currently, he may project into a 3 and D role at the next level, as he could be a potential second round pick in 2019.
