Summary:

Theo John is a strong, physical big man that recently played at Marquette before transferring to Duke.  He is a high-motor player that will set good screens and make hustle plays to help his team on both ends of the floor.  He will need to expand his skill set offensively, and he rarely looks to score the basketball, but his ability to make team plays could enable him to compete for a roster spot in the NBA someday.
