Scouting Report: One of the hottest big men in the country, Mutombo has added eight high major offers since February, and we don’t expect to see that trend stop. With elite level size, exceptional defensive and rim protecting ability, and a rapidly developing offensive skill set, he has rightfully risen through the national rankings in 2020. His height and length allow him to be a very sound shot blocker with great timing, and he does a great job of not biting on fakes and being able to affect shots while nearly staying grounded. He also has big, soft hands that allow him to keep the ball in play after blocking shots. On the offensive end, he has good fundamentals and footwork, soft touch around the rim, and a good hook shot over his left shoulder. As he continues to develop his game as well as develop physically, he will be a rally nice impact player who can produce at a high level.
