Despite being one of the key contributors to Duke last season, Cam Reddish struggled to stay consistent on the offensive end. Well, the former five-star recruit has finally revealed the reason for it.

Leading up to the NBA Draft, the biggest question about Reddish is his motor. Scouts want to be certain that his passion on the court isn't an issue.

Fortunately for any team interested in taking Reddish, he admit that his eating habits affected his production.

During an interview on ESPN's First Take, Reddish revealed that he wasn't eating healthy at Duke. He went with a less traditional route, settling for french fries, pizza and chicken tenders.

Reddish is back on the right track though, which should have NBA teams feeling pretty comfortable with his conditioning.

"Last year I wasn't necessarily doing a great job of taking care of my body and it affected me on the floor," Reddish said. "Now that I'm feeling good, I'm feeling healthy, I feel I'm going to be able to go out there and perform on a consistent basis."

Out of all the Duke prospects in this year's draft class, Reddish is by far the most difficult one to crack.

There were times during Reddish's freshman season where he looked unstoppable. On the flip side, the sharpshooting swingman disappeared in a few crucial games.

Regardless of all the uncertainty surrounding Reddish, the expectation is that he'll be selected inside the top 10.

ESPN will broadcast the NBA Draft at 7 p.m. E.T. from the Barclays Center.
