It’s way too early for NBA analysts to be talking about the 2016 NBA Draft, but ESPN released their NBA Draft big board on Monday.

Among the top 10 NBA prospects is Marquette freshman Henry Ellenson.

From ESPN draft analyst Chad Ford:

Ellenson reminds some scouts of a young Kevin Love. He’s a big man who can play with his back to the basket and also stretch the floor. He’s a very good athlete for a player his size and he’s more physically ready to dominate than many of the other players in our top 10. He’ll need to have a great freshman season at Marquette to sustain this spot, but there’s no question he has the talent to go this high.

The 6-foot-10, 230-pound center was the fifth overall recruit in the class of 2015.
