Ugonna Onyenso is a very athletic big man that has shown promise as a rim protector at Kentucky this year. He has not played much, but he has really excelled as a rebounder and shot blocker in limited minutes. He will need to get more playing time and expand his skill set offensively, but he could be a definite prospect to watch for the 2024 draft.
