The Baylor Bears’ frontcourt was essentially decimated after all three starters, Perry Jones III, Quincy Acy and Quincy Miller, either graduated or left early to enter the NBA draft.
Yet, head coach Scott Drew, just like Bill Self, has a very deep bench and one of the nation’s best recruiting classes coming in for next year.
One such recruit, center Isaiah Austin, is going to be a pivotal part of the Bears next season.
He is the coveted seven-footer that every coach wants and every fan loves. He is a monster on the rim, crashing the boards for offensive and defensive rebounds.
He also has a gifted set of post moves, but his most impressive offensive skill is his ability to shoot from literally anywhere on the floor, even from beyond the arc.
Austin does not allow his length to hinder his athleticism, as he is also one of the best floor runners at the center position.
Look for Austin to pair with Cory Jefferson next year and combine to be a dominating duo in the paint and one of the best shot-blocking cores in the game.
