Played four years at LSU and started in 57 of his last 60 games...Started all 35 games as senior and averaged 7.7 ppg, 7.2 rpg and 2.7 blocks...Missed seven games as a junior with a broken bone in his right hand, but still averaged a career-high 11.6 ppg, to go with 6.6 rpg and 2.6 blocks...Solid athlete with long, lanky frame....Terrific leaper...Solid shot blocker and rebounder...Quick and runs the floor well...Durable...Needs to add a significant amount of strength...Lacks offensive skills...Wasn`t all that productive in college, especially for his size.
