Tari Eason is a strong, physical combo forward that had a very good sophomore season at LSU, and he helped his team get off to a 12-0 start. He’ll need to be a more consistent shooter in games, but his athleticism, motor, and defensive versatility could make him an intriguing option for NBA teams to consider. Currently, he projects to go in the mid first round in the 2022 draft.
