Evaluation

Omer Yurtseven, a 6-foot-11 sturdy post prospect, is an impressive scoring post prospect. He's equipped with good hands and impressive touch around the basket. When he posts up he favors a right jump hook over his left shoulder. But it doesn't stop there. He does a good job of securing good post position on the block and finishes well with either hand at the rim. He can also face up and make a mid-range jump shot. His form and shot mechanics are good. Now his range doesn't extend deep, but with time and effort, he'll eventually be able to step out further. Yurtseven, although not an explosive athlete, is deceptive athletically, as he moves fluidly, runs hard and gets off the ground better than you'd expect on first glance. While his frame isn't overly thick, he does have a wide base and has a solid build. Yurtseven does a very good job rebounding his area and is especially effective as an offensive rebounder, as he pursues put back opportunities.
