Former Breck high school star David Roddy is expected to get chosen during Thursday night’s NBA Draft. Twin Cities affiliate KSTP caught up with him on Tuesday.

Roddy is the reigning Mountain West Player of the Year after averaging more than 19 points and 7 rebounds last season for Colorado State.

Roddy measured 6’6 in shoes, 6’11.5 wingspan, 8’9 standing reach, 260.8 lbs with 11.6% body fat at the Combine in May. With his size, he can guard multiple positions. He also has transformed into a solid 3-point shooter, making over 40 percent of his attempts last season.

Roddy wrapped up his pre-draft workout with the Timberwolves, also traveling to Dallas, Oklahoma City, and Boston. In all, he worked out for half of the teams in the NBA.

A stellar high school quarterback, Roddy turned down a Division I football offer from Wyoming. He chose Colorado State for hoops over an offer from the Gophers and others.
