First Team All-ACC selection in 2012-13...Scored 12.7 ppg and ranked fifth in the nation in hauling in 10.9 rpg...Recorded 18 double-doubles as a senior, including a 14-point, 15-rebound performance against Temple in the second round of the 2013 NCAA Tournament...Was also an important cog in the NC State rotation as a junior (10.8 ppg, 9.2 rpg) and a sophomore (7.4 ppg, 6.5 rpg)...Prototypical power forward at the college level...Very strong and physical...In addition to his rebounding prowess, does plenty of dirty work on defense, recording a block and a steal per game last season...Does not possess much of an offensive arsenal beyond overpowering players, which will be much more difficult at the next level...Undersized to play the 4 in the NBA, will need to rely on strength and tenacity.
