Jake LaRavia is a strong, high-motor combo forward that had a very good junior season at Wake Forest. He has a variety of skills that has allowed him to thrive, and he’s shot the ball very well in big games. He’s not an overwhelming athlete though, but his jump shot, motor, and feel for the game could enable him to be a solid pick in the 2022 draft.
