Ally has great size and strength inside. His athleticism, soft shooting touch and willingness to run the field add depth to our inside game. His height allows him to play with his back to the basket and be a rim protector, while his soft shooting touch and IQ allow him to be a playmaker when facing off. Having played for a top high school in Red Bank Catholic as well as a top level EYBL AAU organization in Philly Rise, he knows how to win. I foresee him being a strong presence on the court and becoming a dominant center for us.
