Uthoff, Jarrod  Iowa  6'10" 214 PF SR. Uthoff has a unique combination of skill and size. He can make a 25 foot jump shot with a quick release unlike few before him. At the same time, Uthoff is nimble enough at 6'10" to give offensive opponents trouble. He blocks shots at a high rate. He led the Big Ten this season in blocked shots (80 total). Uthoff is averaging 18.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 2.5 blocked shots per game.  In his Iowa career (three seasons) he had slightly more assists than turnovers. He improved his scoring average each season, going from 7.6, to 12.4, to 18.9 ppg. Uthoff's Defensive Rating was significantly better than the Iowa team DEFRTG (that's a good thing). His standing reach is 8'8" (same as Kelly Oubre and T.J. Warren) ...Uthoff is interesting. He can accurately make deep shots. He looked uncomfortable on the big stage earlier this year in a loss at Maryland. Likewise he under whelmed in tournament play early this season (Iowa losses to Dayton and Notre Dame). I am interested to see if Uthoff can reach his potential. He seems passive. I believe he could really be more effective if he was more aggressive. I like Uthoff more than most do.
