Zimmerman had a new found energy about him at the camp in Colorado. The highly skilled post player ran the floor, finished transition buckets and also swatted shots away in the lane. In a class full of talented post players, Zimmerman reaffirmed our opinion that he stands near the top of the class with this performance. His specialty at the next level will be able to provide a team a legitimate scoring threat in the pivot. Zimmerman showed his ability to score over defenders in the paint while also being able to shoot the reverse pivot jumper with accuracy. The left-handed post projects to be a post player who can tandem well with another post player on the floor because of his skill. He passes and handles as well as any big man in the class, which gives a team the luxury to move him to the top of the key if needed.
