Trayce Jackson-Davis is an athletic, energetic big man that can score in the post, rebound, and block shots to help his team on both ends of the floor. He is a very good scorer and rebounder in the paint, but he may need to improve his face-up game and on-ball defense. He had good sophomore and junior seasons, and he currently projects to go in the second round in the 2023 draft.
