Bleacher Report’s Josh Martin ranked the top 25 players under 25 and Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert made the list at No. 13.

Of Gobert’s game, Martin wrote, “Few players in the NBA today (if any) have the types of tools that Rudy Gobert brings to the table. At 7’1″ with a 7’8 ½” wingspan and feet fleet enough to fly up the floor, the Stifle Tower has fashioned himself into one of the league’s elite pivots, particularly on the defensive end.”

After talking about Gobert’s ability as a rim protector, Martin continued, “But Gobert does more all over the floor now for the Jazz than he ever has. His 12.8 points, 12.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game are all career highs, and his field-goal percentage (66.4) is the second-highest in basketball.”

Martin’s top three players under 25 were Anthony Davis at No. 1, Giannis Antetokounmpo at No. 2 and Kyrie Irving at No. 3.
