USA Basketball U19 Training Camp Measurements and Analysis

Jun 28, 2017, 03:06 pm
Widely regarded as one of the top prospects in the high school class of 2019, Bol Bol measured a jaw-dropping 7'3 in shoes, with a 7'8 wingspan, to go along with a 220-pound frame he's added over 15 pounds to since this time last year, and 40 pounds since the summer of 2016.  One of the younger players in this group, not turning 18 until November, Bol didn't make the cut for the final U19 roster, as his maturity and ability to maintain a consistently high intensity level aren't yet where they need to be to compete against players nearly two years older than him.
Nevertheless, from a physical standpoint, Bol already stacks up well with some of the NBA's most notoriously long players, including Rudy Gobert who measured 7'2 in shoes with a 7'8.5 wingspan and a 238-pound frame at age 21 at the 2013 NBA Draft Combine.  Like Gobert in his late teens, Bol has plenty of room to improve his frame and polish his game, but his sheer size and elite 9'7 standing reach give him game-changing potential if his mentality improves.

Bol Bol, 7'2, 205, Center, 16.7 years old, Bishop Miege (KS) 2018

Listed at 7'2 with a 7'8 wingspan, Bol Bol out of Bishop Miege High school in Kansas is hard to miss. Bol was by far the tallest player at the Elite 24, but at just 205 pounds with a very thin lower body, he will have to continue to add weight to his frame in order to be able to play at the next levels. He has solid mobility for a player his size, and while he is not yet the most fluid athlete, he looks comfortable moving well in open space. He proved to be a fairly reliable target in pick and roll situations, showing decent hands, and barely even needing to get off his feet in order to finish above the rim. He showed some aggressiveness playing out of the post, but doesn't really yet have the advanced footwork and touch to be a reliable post up option. He is most effective finishing around the rim, and has the length to finish from the areas of the court that would never be possible for anyone else. He took a couple jump shots, but he has low release and not a very fluid stroke that remains a work in progress.

Defensively Bol clearly has the length and size to be a factor as a rim protector, but his ability to defend the post and ball screens is something he'll have to work on, as he learns proper defensive principles and doesn't only rely on his length. He has just average instincts on the glass, and lets ball flies over his head that should be his. At just 16 years old Bol has plenty of upside given his size and length, and seems to be filling into his frame having measured 27 pounds heavier at the Elite 24 than he did a year ago. His game has plenty of room for growth, and has he continues to polish his skill-level and develop his physical tools, he has a bright future.
