Bryce Thompson is an agile, skilled swingman that can shoot the basketball, and he has played fairly well at Oklahoma State this season. He previously played at Kansas, but he struggled to perform consistently in his first two seasons. This year, he’s shot the ball much better, and he scored 23 points and made 7 threes in a December 31st loss to Kansas. He will need to show that he can play well on a consistent basis, but his strong performance recently is a step in the right direction. Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2023 draft.
