Projected Draft Range: Likely Undrafted
Solid low post scorer
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent playmaker for his size
Needs to improve his face-up game
Can be reluctant to take outside shots
Struggles to guard opponents out on the perimeter
Only an average athlete
A bit undersized to play inside
Zach Freemantle is a strong, skilled big man that can score and pass out of the post. He will need to show that he can knock down jumpers and defend upper-echelon opponents on a consistent basis. He has been solid at Xavier, but his lack of a reliable outside shot combined with possessing average athletic gifts and having less than ideal size to play inside could make it tough for him to make it to or succeed at the NBA level. Still, even if he doesn’t reach there, he is a skilled player that could carve out a lengthy playing career in professional basketball.
