Kevon Looney of Milwaukee, Wisc., chose UCLA last week after narrowing to a final six that included Duke, Florida, Michigan State, Tennessee and Wisconsin. A consensus top 15 caliber prospect in the class of 2014, Looney brings a frame similar to that of a young Kevin Durant to the hardwood. However, Looney’s current skill set is more reminiscent to that of current NBA forward Darrell Arthur. Here’s our take on coach Steve Alford‘s newest UCLA Bruin.

USA Basketball Mini-Camp Evaluation: Kevon Looney (Milwaukee, Wisc.)

Looney is long, lean combo type post depending on system and who is on the floor personnel wise. He has a consistent activity level and runs the floor in transition extremely well. He might have been the best post here in that regard. Looney will need to continue to add size and strength to his slender frame to maximize his potential. Looney knocked down the right-hand 15 footer in Hi-Lo situations as well. It will be interesting to watch his physical development as well as his skill set growth over the next 18 months as he begins the trek towards a successful college stint in Westwood.
