Geoffrey Groselle is a 6-foot-11 225 pound center. He has the ability to block and alter shots. He accumulates a lot of steals because he is alert once the entry pass in being passed into the post. He also has the ability to clean the glass.

His shot-blocking and rebounding is above-average and it brings another dimension to the frontcourt. He has shown the ability to put the ball on the floor and make a play. Although, that is one of the areas he needs to improve.

Overall, Groselle is a great post presence. He is physical, passive and can intimidate as well as make offensive plays in the post.

Wherever Groselle decides to go, the team will have a decent center to build around for about four years.

Groselle sat down with CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell for a brief interview and had this to say.
