Top NBA Prospects in the SEC, Part Ten: Prospects #10-13|
September 26, 2014
A consensus top-50 recruit in high school, Moses Kingsley's freshman season was mostly a learning process, averaging just 4 points and 3.2 rebounds over 11.5 minutes per game.
Standing around 6'10, with a 7'2 wingspan and a frame that should fill out reasonably well in time, Kingsley is a mobile, agile big man, who's physical tools give him intriguing upside.
Skill-wise, Kingsley is a fairly limited player at this point, seeing most of his touches around the basket as a complementary option in Arkansas' offense. The Huntington Prep product didn't show much in terms of consistency in the post or as a jump shooter in limited opportunities, but his combination of length and explosiveness made him an efficient finisher in close. His best moments offensively came in the open floor, where his ability to run the floor made for a few easy scoring opportunities.
Where Kingsley did contribute as a freshman was as an offensive rebounder and shot-blocker. He's a useful player to have around the basket because of his size, length and agility, and he impressed with his intensity for stretches as well. A bit mistake prone and still improving his coordination, Kingsley didn't always make the most of his opportunities cleaning up missed shots, and struggled with foul trouble at times defensively, but generally had a positive impact in his limited minutes inside, especially on the defensive end. One of the top-20 per-40 minute pace-adjusted shot blockers in the country regardless of class, Kingsley's combination of energy, length and quickness allowed him to protect the rim at a high-level despite his somewhat limited skill level.
Like many young, raw big men, Kingsley looked rushed and struggled at times as a freshman, but he nonetheless ranked 10th in last year's freshman class in PER, albeit in limited minutes. Players in his mold can make big, sudden jumps in ability, so it makes sense to continue to keep track of his progress to see how he's improving the rest of his game to go along with his already promising defensive presence.
