Tyler Cavanaugh is a skilled, offensive minded big man that can shoot threes well as score in the post. He is a versatile scorer that can also score on hustle plays, and he has great hands that allows him to catch passes and get numerous rebounds in traffic.
But while he may not possess the ideal athleticism for a big man at the next level, Cavanaugh also possesses a great motor that allows him to compete relentlessly. As he was the MVP of the Reese’s College All-Star Game, Cavanaugh may have the skills to be an effective role player at the next level.
