ESPN.com: Sutton has very long arms and uses his length to play as an effective force on the defensive end. He has decent timing and anticipation which makes him a very good shot blocker. Sutton also rebounds the ball well, using his long arms to snare rebounds. Sutton will have to increase his strength and add muscle to his frame in order to compete at a high level in the rugged Big East. He will also have to improve his offensive game, with particular focus on his post moves and interior footwork.
