What kind of player is he BZ? G? SF? Big? Has he played with Pangos and the other great Canadian players?

Power forward. Old scout profile (http://scouthoops.scout.com/a.z?s=75&p=8&c=1&nid=4530723).

an athletic, high-flying, shot-blocking, mobile PF.

Heard he's gunning for Kentucky or Texas and/or hoping to test NBA waters early, yet not sure Coach Brown or Coach Cal even recruited Khem out of HS or if the interest is mutual at this point -- assume he's wanting to follow in Tristan Thompson's footsteps to the League or the name brand of Kentucky. This kid has zero interest in Gonzaga according to reports on Twitter & Pitts message board (all say either KY or TX, fwiw). One post is title, "Next Stop: Lexington, KY".

According to recent articles, he was NOT a favorite amongst his own teammates -- his fellow Panthers threw him under the bus and one of the Seniors even called him a kid who is "self-entitled, needs to grow up, and didn't earn a thing". Coach Dixon has sent his well-wishes.

Khem Birch has left Pitt's basketball program for "personal reasons".

He may end up back at Pitt, according to the article. But if he does indeed decide to transfer, anyone think we could lure him to Spokane?
