Check out what we had to say about Kolby at the Phenom 150:

'we look at a player that currently sits at an exceptional crossroads between productivity and long-term upside, Jake McTaggart. He's a big, strong post prospect that plays with toughness and physicality on both sides of the ball. McTaggart scores the ball well from the elbows-in but typically likes to work around the basket and finish through contact. He's an incredibly strong rebounder, especially for his age, and did a terrific job of dominating the glass on both ends of the floor. McTaggart has a great feel for the game and his overall skillset, but also looks likely to continue steadily progressing and possibly growing. Next in his development process is working on his touch as a finisher, as he is great at getting open opportunities and rebounding but can better maximize his scoring presence. Coach Sause on McTaggart: 'Jake is a very skilled young big man that really has a chance to become an excellent player. He has a very good body and can move well for his size. With improved touch and use of his off-hand, Jake can develop into a very good player.' McTaggart already possesses an abundance of tools to work with and should be a prospect to closely monitor over the next few years.'
