Braxton Key is an athletic combination forward transferred to Virginia after having played two seasons at Alabama.  He is a player that can score in a variety of ways, but he will likely need to improve his jump shot.  He didn’t put up gaudy stats, but he was able to help his team in a role off the bench.​

Recently, Key excelled as an energetic, hustle player in the National Championship game.  He will still need to continue to develop his skill set on offense, but he has been a solid role player at Virginia, and he could be a potential second round pick if he ends up declaring to enter the NBA draft.
