Zach Edey is a strong, physical center that can overpower opponents in the middle to score, rebound, and block shots in the paint. He’ll need to expand upon his skill set on offense and show that he can match up to quicker, more athletic opponents. So far, he is having a terrific junior season, and he has helped lead Purdue to many wins so far in college basketball. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2023 draft.
