2020 Draft Profile - Xavier Tillman

Jeremy Woo - Sept. 16th: "His strength and balance help compensate for his lack of height, and he should be able to give teams immediate help off the bench with his defensive chops, rebounding, playmaking and screen-setting."

Gary Parrish - CBS Sports - July 6th: "Xavier Tillman used his size and strength to be one of the best defensive bigs in the country this season, one who is also comfortable guarding in space or out on the perimeter. The 6-8 forward averaged 13.7 points and 10.3 rebounds while shooting 55.0% from the field -- and he also made 37% of his 3-point attempts."

HashTag Basketball - July 1st: "On offense, Tillman is a solid screener and a versatile scorer. He can knock down open shots or finish over smaller defenders. The problem is he struggles with any consistency when scoring. He can struggle against stronger opponents in the post and isn't consistent enough from behind the arc. "

NBA Draft Room - May 26th: "A glue-guy and hard-nosed player with a high basketball IQ."

Jeremy Woo - SI - May 6th: "He rebounds, sets great screens, can make plays for others in a pinch, knows exactly where to be on defense, and has flashed potential to shoot from outside. Hes undersized for an NBA center, but Tillman should be able to help teams by simply continuing to be a better version of his current self."

Rob Dauster - NBC Sports - Apr. 13th: "For starters, he is a terrific passer. No one in college basketball is better than making the right play in a 4-on-3 scenario when the defense traps a pick-and-roll ball-handler than Tillman. But he is also an excellent defender that can really read the game."

Sam Marsdale - 247 Sports - Apr. 11th: "It remains to be seen whether Tillman enters the draft, but hes one of the more athletic players if he does. At over 13 points and 10 rebounds this past season, Tillman will want to develop a three-point stroke to round out his game."

Kyle Boone - CBS Sports - Apr. 9th: "Whether it's rebounding or blocking shots or scoring or setting screens, Tillman does all the little things that make him a high-floor prospect with little risk at this point in the first round."
