    Kyle Luckett is the most agile 7 footer in the entire country. He has great hands, exectional timinng blocking shots, with great mechanics with his shot from the field and free throw. In adiition, he has good foot work in the post as well as being able to face up towards the basket shooting jump shots, or putting the ball on the floor driving to the bucket. Kyle also is an exceptional passer both in the open floor and in the post making interior passes.
