Tanner Groves is a tall, skilled big man that can shoot the basketball and space the floor for his team on offense. He is a capable shooter that scored 19 points and made 4 threes in his team’s February 12th loss to Kansas last year. He’s not an overwhelming athlete, and he’ll need to improve in the other areas of the game, but his size and jump shot could enable him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA someday.
