Style wise he's been compared to Brian Rafalski with more size. His top potential is probably a no 2 offensive defenseman. He may not develop enough to be good enough defensively to play top pairing minutes but should at the very least find a home as a PP specialist with a career similar to the likes of a Marc Andre Bergeron.

So to sum up his upside is a no 2 defenseman who plays top PP minutes and his downside is a journeyman PP specialist. If he turned pro this year he would likely have been Syracuse's no1 defenseman and would probably be the first call up if Visnovsky or Fowler got injured.
