Thomas Bryant is an athletic, skilled big man that brings a very solid skill package to his team in college basketball. He is a versatile scorer that can score in transition as well as off of cuts, and he also has some low post moves that he can use to score on the block. Plus, he is a good shooter that has recently developed his outside shot, as he could end up becoming a stretch big in the NBA.
But, he will likely need to improve his rebounding and defense. His performance can be inconsistent at times, as he can make a key block on one play, and then have a lapse on another that may lead his team to allowing a score. Right now though, Thomas Bryant is off to a solid start for his sophomore campaign, and if he keeps this up, he could end up being a lottery pick in 2017.
