Standing a legit 6'11 (at least), Adam Woodbury is a prospect on most Midwest high-major radars. He moves well for his size and looks to have a frame capable of putting on good weight for the position. He doesn't yet have the strength that you'd like to see in a big center, but his body looks like it is just barely starting to mature and fill out.
From a skills standpoint, Woodbury is reasonably advanced for his
class. He has a very soft baby hook over his right shoulder (he's
left-handed) and turns very quick to his right side from the low
block. While he doesn't possess any counter moves yet, his size
allows him to get that hook off over most defenders. He rarely steps
outside of the paint to receive the ball, but his mechanics look fine
in the small sample size of shots he did take. He'll need to work on
his consistency from the charity stripe, where he was pretty
inconsistent from one shot to the next. It's probably due to his lack
of strength at this point, but for a 7-footer Woodbury spends a bit too
much time playing below the rim. With added strength and maturity,
he'll need to develop some power to his game so that he can finish
Being so tall, Woodbury will naturally be looked at as a shot-blocker.
Unfortunately for him, he wasn't blessed much length in his arms and he
struggles to impact the game from a defensive standpoint. He has the
potential to defend the post well at the next level, as he clearly has
good instincts and IQ, but much of that potential depends on his body
filling out and his ability to build strength in his core and legs.
Woodbury has a great deal of potential as a college prospect, both
defensively and offensively, and will likely be pursued by a bevy of
high majors across the Midwest.
