Ogbeide is already blossoming into a dominant player on defense. Now he’ll need to use his physicality on offense. He can develop the rest of his game at a quicker pace because of the urgency Maten’s injury places on the team, especially around the basket.
In my opinion, Ogbeide is the most underrated player in the SEC, and definetely the most underrated sophomore in the nation. At times he’s been unbeatable around the basket on defense. And when he’s been asked, he’s delivered on offense.
He just hasn’t been asked all that much. But the Bulldogs will be asking for more out of him on offense now that Maten is out.
