WAS Power Forward: 6’11, 245 lbs; 2nd year, Villanova

NBA Role: (raw) interior presence • UnderDOG

One of the anchors of Jay Wright’s Villanova Wildcats, 6’11 forward Daniel Ochefu was CRUCIAL during ‘Nova’s National Championship run (in 2016); raw interior presence w/ a solid future on the glass – Ochefu improved his rebounding every year in school, could make an impact pulling down boards for Scott Brooks; confident w/ his back to the basket: Ochefu likes going to his right hook (across the middle) after faking left, can pivot into counters if the shot isn’t there; strong help-side defender in the league?; needs to work on passing out of the post & improving range on his shot; adds depth to WAS’s front court – in case of emergency, Ochefu is ready to go*

*should pay close attn to what Tarik Black is doing in LA – Ochefu has a similar makeup (not the same type of athlete, however)

DOG Status: UnderDOG

Signature Shot: TBD.
