2020 NBA Draft Preview: Isaiah Stewart PF/C-Washington

Stewart -the 2019 Naismith High School National Player of the Year at La Lumiere HS (N.Y.)- finished his freshman season at Washington as a first-team All-Pac-12 selection. Aside from averaging 17 points per game, the New York native also put up 8.8 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per outing. He posted 14 double-doubles during the year. During his time on the Nike EBYL circuit with City Rocks, Stewart cemented his standing as a two-way player. He already possesses an NBA-ready frame and could very well hear his name called in the first round of the 2020 NBA Draft.

Stewart earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors a year after Rivals.com named him the second-ranked recruit in the Class of 2019.

As Oturu has continued to grow, his game has also taken the necessary steps. The All-Big Ten defender averaged 2.5 blocks per game in 2019-20, while also averaging 20.1 points per game and 11.3 rebounds. Oturu ranked second in the Big Ten with 18 double-doubles and has firmly put himself in a position to hear his name called relatively early in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Oturu earned second-team All-Big Ten honors in 2019-20.
