Birthdate: 1/12/1995

2017 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 90

Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted

Pros:

Strong finisher around the basket

Adequate low post scorer

Underrated passer for a big man

Very good rebounder

Adequate defensive player

Good shot blocker

Mobile for a player his size

Great motor

Great size to play the center position

Has a very long wingspan

Summary:

Youssoupha is a true center prospect that could project to be a rim protector in the NBA.  He can finish plays around the basket, rebound, and block shots, but he will need to show that he can excel against upper echelon athletes when he is on the floor.

In a favorable scenario, he could end up perhaps being a similar player to Detroit Pistons’ center Boban Marjanovic, as Fall could be a potential second round pick in 2017.
