11. Cameron Krutwig Loyola-Chicago
Krutwig has the ability to put the ball down and drive to get good looks. He has a really good touch around the basket and makes it look easy. Further, he is very smooth with the ball and is great in pick and roll situations as well as handoffs. Also, his mid-range jumper is very solid as well. He’s solid in ball screen action defensively, but he can struggle to guard out towards the three-point line. In addition, he is very solid around the basket as he gets in a really good position to contest shots.
12. Oscar Tshiebwe West Virginia
13. David McCormack Kansas
McCormack has really good size and moves pretty well sealing off his defenders consistently. He utilizes jump hooks effectively and has a decent touch around the basket, but he must get better. Furthermore, he has good hands and is in good control of the ball. Also, he needs to improve on his overall ability to be a focus and improve his skill around the basket. He rebounds the ball well but could take the next level to be a really good rebounder on both ends. McCormack’s mobility and size give him the ability to improve but he needs to really take the next step offensively to be a force for Kansas. Now defensively, his athleticism and mobility are key with his capabilities of guarding out on the perimeter. Also, he has the ability to show on screens and recover around the basket very well and he’s active off the ball as well. McCormack’s offensive development will be key for his success in his junior season.

15. Derek Culver West Virginia
16. Jay Huff Virginia
17. DJ Funderburk NC State
Funderburk brings very good effort and energy on both ends of the floor, playing extremely hard. Next, his athleticism and ability to rebound the basketball is very good. He brings good mobility on the offensive end being very solid in ball screens diving to the rim. Furthermore, he’s really effective in the high post when he flashes and can make the mid-range jumper consistently. Now, he must become more skilled with the basketball to be a more well rounded offensive player. His skill set is limited but the athleticism and effort do make up for some of his limitations with the ball. Defensively, he brings very solid effort and moves well to be in position. He must improve his strength to be even more effective on post-ups defensively. Funderburk will be one of the best bigs in the ACC next season.
