SUMMARY

Arizona freshman center did not enter this season as a projected lottery pick, but his strong showing early in the season has for sure caught the attention of NBA scouts and executives.

Nnaji has been a very efficient scorer through the first 9 games of his college career, connecting on an absurd 73% of his field goal attempts. While he flashes potential as a shooter with his soft touch, he must improve as a rebounder and defender.
