Kofi didn't play hoops growing up so his hoops age is way lower than Azibuike, he played soccer and track. He's got a lot further to grow. Azbuike can't make a 15' jump shot, which is why his draft projections never changed. Kofi may be able to expand his game like Oturu did. If so, he'll move into the 1st round.Congratulations to Kofi. He was awesome at Illinois.
Maybe circumstances change and he returns, who knows. Would he ever be a 1st rounder in the modern NBA? Similar player...Udoka Azubuike a 4 year player was B12POY & All American and still is projected as a 2nd rounder — his draft status hasn’t budged for 3 years. Kofi is 16 days older than Udoka.
