Santos-Silva is a highly productive interior post player. He reminds me of Levi Cook (Elev8 Prep – DePaul signee) in build and physique. He has soft touch and is effective at scoring around the rim. He has nimble enough feet to square up and attack defenders from the high post and short corner.

Santos-Silva is a skilled option at the post position. He can be a combo 4/5 averaging 12.5 points, 9.2 rebounds in EYBL play. His ability to score the ball even though he’s a below the rim guy is impressive.

Santos-Silva is a below the rim post player. He is left-handed with good feet. He is undersized.
