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 as a sophomore. On the other hand, he struggled with his three-point shot for the past two seasons and he will need to be a more consistent defender in games. Currently, he is a long shot to be drafted, but if he can get his jump shot back on track, it could help him significantly in the future.
