J.T. Thor is an athletic, energetic combo forward that can project into a 3 and D type of role player in the NBA. He is a high-flyer that can finish plays above the rim, and he also can take people off the dribble to score on drives to the hoop. He also is a solid rebounder and defender that can guard multiple positions, but he will need to improve his jump shot and be a more consistent player in games. He is a talented prospect that projects to go in the late first to the second round range for the 2021 draft.
According to this tweet via KUInsider, his birthday is on August 26th. It is estimated that his birthdate is 8/26/2001.
