Thomas Welsh is a skilled offensive player that can score in the post and knock down mid-range shots, and he also can use off-ball movement to get scores for his team. He is a solid rebounder that can haul in numerous boards consistently.
However, he will need to improve his defense, as he may tend to struggle to guard quicker players on the floor. Welsh is a rebounding big man that may project into a stretch big role at the next level, and he could end up being a good addition to an NBA team’s summer league roster.
