Tanner Groves

Updated on 6/28/23.  Written by Alan Lu.
2023 rankings were finalized on 6/22/23.

Height: 6-10
Weight: 235
College: Oklahoma
Classification: Sixth-Year Senior
Birthdate: 5/22/1999

Projected Draft Range: Likely Undrafted

Pros:

Solid shooter for a big man, especially from deep
Decent low post scorer
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Adequate playmaker for his size
Has solid strength

Cons:

Struggles to consistently create his own shot
Can be reluctant to take outside shots
Needs to improve his rebounding
Not an elite shot blocker
Struggles to guard quicker players
Only an average athlete at best

Summary:

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.
