Abdul Ado, 6' 11, C, Chattanooga, Tennessee, 2016 High School Class
Ado played only one game (19 minutes) and it was a forgettable one as he scored one point, grabbed four rebounds, missed all three of his shots and committed two turnovers and four fouls. It clearly wasn't Ado's best showing, but his physical profile along is worth noting despite his struggles scoring the ball or putting anything together offensively.
At 6' 11 with a 7' 4 wingspan, Ado can really move. He covers ground very fluidly on defense and has an outstanding frame that will fill out nicely in time. Although he didn't block any shots in his 19 minutes, it's not hard to tell that, with more polish and experience, protecting the rim will be one of his best attributes. He's long, quick off the floor, and can rotate swiftly from the weakside.
The Chattanooga native could stand to get a little tougher on the interior, especially considering he's in the 2016 high school class, but the tools are there.
Ado brings very little to the table offensively at this juncture. He has a major lean on his jump shot, his footwork is very rigid, and he lacks natural touch and awareness when the ball is in his hands.
Ado is a bit behind other bigs in his class from a basketball IQ and skill set standpoint, but he has as good of a physical profile as any, making him well worth tracking throughout his college career and beyond.
