A mature defensive game and burgeroning offensive prowess make Ahac a sleeper pick in 2019.

His size drew a lot of attention, but a great offensive game earned him to a high spot in the rankings.

Good awareness, quick dangles, and an accurate shot will go to waste if the winger can’t round out his game.
