After a rough Freshman season at North Carolina, 7’1 C Walker Kessler has found his niche at Auburn.  The big man recorded a triple double last night (12/29/21) against LSU.  Dropping 16 points while blocking 11 shots and pulling down 10 rebounds, it was the 1st triple Double for Auburn in quite some time. NBA Mock drafts has this young man 1st round to 2nd round 2022 or 2023 entry. We would love to see this Kessler continue to develop a solid feel for the game, become more aggressive on the offensive end (don’t pass the ball out once you have it in the mid range area), and continue to finesse his three point shot by taking more attempts and living with the results.  The grass is greener on the other side for Sophomore Center Walker Kessler.
