Tonny Trocha-Morelos is an athletic, skilled big man that can shoot the basketball. He may profile into a stretch big type of player in the NBA, and he also can make solid defensive plays when he is dialed in. If he has a strong senior season, he could make an interesting case to perhaps get there.
But despite having solid physical tools and the ability to make outside shots, Trocha-Morelos has been something of an underachiever in college basketball, especially for a player his skill level.
He has never averaged a double digit number of points per game in any season, and he has yet to consistently rebound or block shots in college. Right now, Trocha-Morelos may be a long shot to be drafted, but he may have the skills to end up on an NBA summer league roster.
