Updated on 3/20/23.  Written by Alan Lu.

Height: 6-8
Weight: 230
College: Maryland
Classification: Senior
Birthdate: 12/4/2000

Projected Draft Range: Likely Undrafted

Pros:
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Can post up smaller players
Shot the ball well as a sophomore
Decent playmaker
Decent rebounder
Above average athlete

Cons:
Needs to improve his shooting
Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Struggles to score in traffic
Can have lapses defensively
Not an elite athlete

Summary:
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.
