After averaging 10.4 points, 7.8 rebounds and 3.4 blocked shots per game as a sophomore, New Mexico State center Sim Bhullar was named to the WAC’s All-Defensive team. Named Most Outstanding Player of the 2013 WAC tournament, the 7-foot-5 Bhullar was a key figure in two NCAA tournament trips for Marvin Menzies’ Aggies.

According to multiple reports, Bhullar will forego his final two seasons of eligibility and turn pro. In two seasons at New Mexico State Bhullar played an average of 25.3 minutes per game, and the “shelf life” for a player of his size (he was listed at 360 pounds) can be noticeably shorter than that of smaller players.

Bhullar shot 64.8% from the field as a sophomore (63.3% for his career), and his best performance of the season was a 24-point, 14-rebound, five-block outing in New Mexico State’s WAC quarterfinal victory over Seattle.

Draft Express currently ranks Bhullar as the 75th best player amongst college sophomores, and he isn’t projected to be selected in June’s NBA Draft.
