Robert Sacre Up in the Jersey Combine Tomorrow

Kris Joseph skips the New Jersey Draft Combine happening this weekend but by all accounts Gonzaga big man Robert Sacre is staying in.

Sacre had a real up and down season with great stretches sandwiching injury laden middles but this is a great place for him to show what type of player he could be to the pro scouts.

As outlined by our colleagues at The Slipper Still Fits, Sacre did finish strong and it included a great showing against Jared Sullinger in the NCAA Tournament loss the Zags had. Sacre did show improvements to his overall O game this season and in setting where he will likely be asked to drill plus play in the various scrimmages (3 on 3 and 5 on 5 I would imagine) he should be able to truly show off how much he's learned.

Sacre is scheduled to take the floor in the second part of the combine tomorrow and he has a trio of big men that could match him physically in Eli Holman from Detroit, Justin Hamilton from LSU and Kyle O'Quinn from Norfolk State. All three tip the scales at about the 260 range (O'Quinn is the "lightest" at 240) so this could be a good gauge for us if the pundits talk about 1 on 1 matchup drills.

I really wish I could have been there to see this. I don't know much about O'Quinn and Hamilton but I know that Holman is a legit pro talent. Sacre going up against him would be a good to see since Holman is also an active player with a good two way game.

I think the way Sacre performs here at this combine will be a good indicator of how well he could be at Chicago one in a few days, if he even goes to it.
