USC lands ESPN 100 Max Agbonkpolo. A highly skilled combo forward, who at 6'8" shoots it with range and accuracy. He brings tremendous versatility and upside to the Trojans.

Every draft model will yield at least slightly different results from another, but hard not to notice that the team that -- according to Ben Alamar's poll of executives -- best uses draft analytics (Rockets), took the player (De'Anthony Melton) that was ranked 13th by our model (and best available) with the 46th selection. Per the model, Melton has seventh-best chance to become an all-star caliber player in this class...the six players in front of him all were drafted in the top 10.
