Gophers have offered Chet Holmgren. I like that they are offering early.

Kid can play. Can shoot and will block some shots. Good feet and a good athlete. He does need to start drinking protein shakes 24/7.

Whoa, I was curious what he weighed and found out that he's 6'11, 185 lbs. He's got to get serious about making eating a full time job now if he wants to be physically ready to contribute when he gets to college. Forget the weights, he just needs to be in a caloric surplus to add some mass to his frame before he takes the time to start lifting. Lifting's great and all but it really isn't going to do him much good if he isn't eating the part to fuel any training he may start doing.

It sounds like he has some skills, but reality is that he has to add about 50-60 pounds in the next 3 years. Definitely has some work ahead of him!

He's only in 9th grade, plenty of time to add muscle and weight

There's no doubt he's going to need to add weight, but come on, he's what 15 years old? People are expecting him to add 50-60 pounds by the time he's 18?

It takes many NBA players of any position, especially big guys, till their mid-20s at least to mature physically.
 
Kid may not have fully hit puberty yet. Give him some time. He might still be growing. Nice that we’re in early on a Minnesota kid for once.

Holmgren appears to have some skills - but I'm not sure he will ever grow into a traditional post player. I see him more as a PF or maybe even SF type of player. If you're going to play a kid like Holmgren, you would have to have another banger on the team to do the dirty work under the basket. Leave Holmgren free to roam and use his mobility, which is one of his best attributes.
