Kenrich Williams is in “good position to get drafted at this stage,” according to Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated, who spoke to NBA scouts about the prospect.
The former Horned Frog has the size and hard defense to make it in the league. He only averaged 13.2 points per game, but also averaged 9.3 rebounds per game.
The downside for Williams? He’s a little bit old for the draft process, and has mostly developed, so there isn’t much upside for scouts to be enthralled with.
However, what they’re finding as they research is that Williams is a tough defender who hustles when he’s on the court. William isn’t a dominant scorer and doesn’t have transcendent talent, but his work ethic alone should have NBA teams interested.
In the 2017-2018 season, the Horned Frogs broke a 20-year postseason drought by returning to the NCAA Tournament. They finished the regular season 21-12 and No. 5 in Big 12 standings.
