Qudus Wahab is a strong, physical center that can score with his back to the basket, and he also is a solid rebounder. He had a good sophomore season, and he played very well in the 2021 Big East Tournament to help lead Georgetown to get to the 2021 NCAA Tournament. He will need to extend his shooting range and improve his ability to guard quicker players, especially when he is defending out on the perimeter. Recently, Wahab projects to be a second round prospect for the 2024 draft.
