  • FriarBasketball.com – Craig Leighton – Live from RIC: The Providence Jamfest
  • ESPN – Adam Finkelstein – Class of 2014’s best shot-blockers
  • 3. Paschal Chukwu, Providence

    Chukwu is going to have the biggest adjustment of any player on this list when it comes to the level of competition, but his ability to block and changes shots at the rim will be his most immediate impact at Providence. He’s very aggressive patrolling the paint from the weak side, but he also utilizes his shot-blocking prowess to make up for his current lack of strength when defending the ball on the block. While he’s going to need to get stronger, he has an ability to utilize his size and length in order to recover with a block — even when pushed farther under the rim than he would ideally like.
