Tari Eason is a strong, physical combo forward that is having a good sophomore season at LSU right now. He’s moving quickly up draft boards as his team is off to a 12-0 start. They’ve faced a lot of easy teams in the non-conference portion of the year, so he’ll need to show that he can continue to be successful in conference play as well as in the postseason. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2022 draft.
