Udoh has come on strong in his first season at Baylor. He is an athletic big man who is a good shot blocker and rebounder, and is an improving player on offense. Udoh uses his body well in the post on offense, but needs to develop a stronger repertoire of post moves to solidify his game. He should also work on going strong at the basket and drawing fouls. Defensively, Udoh can be a game-changer. He has a long arms and if he isn’t blocking shots, he is altering them. Also, he has become a very strong rebounder, getting good position and going strong after the ball. He needs to work on bodying offensive players off the blocks, forcing them away from the basket. Udoh has the potential to be a strong player right away at the next level just on his defense and rebounding. If he improves his offensive skills, he has the chance to be a very good NBA player.
