Semi Ojeleye is an offensive-minded, combination forward that can get scores in the post, and he also has greatly improved his jump shot, to the point where he is now a reliable three-point shooter for his team. Also, he is a very good athlete that can finish numerous plays around the basket.
On the other hand, he is undersized to play power forward at the next level, and he may only be a mediocre rebounder for a player that plays inside. He also has limited experience defending opponents out on the perimeter. But with his skill set, NBA teams may be intrigued enough to take him in the late first to second round range of the upcoming draft.
