Usually, finding unsigned bigs during the spring semester is a tall task. 

But not this year. 

A combination of pandemic-racked recruiting, late bloomers and an emphasis on guards in the modern game has left a glut of power forwards and centers available in San Diego. 

Here, we look at the very best of the "big" prospects still on the board in San Diego.

Ubochi is a super long and athletic prospect who runs the floor like a deer and is a very good rim protector. Defensively, he moves his feet well enough and is long enough to defend in pick-and-roll and switch onto guards and not skip a beat. Offensively he has improved over the pandemic, developing a reliable right-hand jump hook, and a nice drop step to his right hand. In several showcases he also showed the ability to catch on the wing or mid post, rip through and score above the rim, but he is better closer to the rim. He’s still just scratching the surface of his potential, and a D1 school who can redshirt him would be wise to offer.
