PF Imoh Silas

The following is the ESPN.com writeup on future Saint Imoh Silas. Silas is a 6’8″ 210lb PF out of Holderness School in Plymouth, N.H. Silas was the 63rd rated PF with a scouting grade of 88.

Strengths:

Silas’ defense is still far ahead of his offense as he blocks shots and really cleans the glass on the defensive end of the floor. He is a strong one-on-one post defender with his only problem occasionally being with his ability to body up with a thicker low post prospect. Offensively, he is primarily a dunker who gets the majority of his points by crashing the offensive glass or running in transition. He is a very good shotblocker where he uses his exceptional timing to send back his opponents shots.

Weaknesses:

Physically, he’s exceptionally cut with a chiseled physique but could stand to add more bulk to compete at the highest level. His shooting stroke looks improved at the free-throw line but it is too much of a work in progress to show up during a high paced game. He finishes around the rim with both hands, and dunks when he’s supposed to, but is otherwise limited offensively with his hands and feet in need of a good deal of work.

Bottom Line:

This raw, low post big man is a solid athlete that runs the floor well and plays hard at all times. He changes the game defensively with his rebounding and shot blocking skills and is also a good on-the-ball interior defender. His game is very similar to the game of Ben Wallace.
