“Aamir is a strong power forward who has a very good skill level for his size,” Brownell said. “He has excellent hands, and as a result, is a great rebounder. He has a good feel for the game, loves to compete, and should have the opportunity to play early in his career because of his size, physical ability and toughness.”
