Trendon Watford is an athletic combo forward that could project to be an energetic defensive specialist in the NBA. He was a 2019 McDonald’s All-American, and he had a decent freshman season.
So far, he is having a very good sophomore season, as his numbers are up pretty much across the board. He will need to significantly improve his jump shot, but he is a talented player that has the ability to excel in the association. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
