Donta Scott is an athletic combo forward that could project into a 3 and D type of role in the NBA. He is shooting the three-ball very well this season as a sophomore. On the other hand, his middling free-throw percentage may be a bit alarming for a prospect that projects to be a shooter at the next level. Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2021 draft.
