This monster of an 18 year old just may end up being the next Amare Stoudemire. The 6’10” 270 lb freshman possesses an insane 7’5” wingspan paired with a 41-inch vertical leap. Drummond has amazing court instincts and is a very good passing big man. He sees plays developing before they happen and is able to anticipate his teammates movements without the ball in order to set them up for easy opportunities. He has very high basketball IQ and has great situational awareness. Drummond has A+ athleticism and could come into the NBA as one of the most athletic centers in the history of the sport. His enormous wingspan and vertical leap make him an exceptional shot-blocker, and his high motor allows him to make blocks coming from the weak-side as well as faced up on defense.
