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.
