Summary: Sullinger figures to be the fourth Buckeye big man in the past five years to be one-and-done. He is a beast down low, and loves throwing his body around and being physical in the paint. The former two-time Mr. Ohio Basketball is not the greatest athlete in the world which might make his transition to the NBA a little more difficult, but he is still a top-10 pick if he declares after his freshman campaign.
Player Comparison: Elton Brand. Brand came into the league somewhat limited by his 6-9 height, but made up for it with his ability to out-physical his opponents. That describes Sullinger perfectly. The Buckeye freshman does not yet have the perimeter game that Brand did when he entered the league but should make a similar impact from the get-go.
