Trayce Jackson-Davis has a decision to make. The All-B1G selection can either return to Indiana for another season at the college level or keep his name in the 2022 NBA Draft, beginning the journey of his professional career.

If Jackson-Davis does decide to return to Bloomington for another season, college basketball expert Andy Katz will have some high expectations for the Hoosiers.

“He declared for the NBA Draft but he left open the window that he could return,” Katz said. “If he does, then Indiana is going to be a Top 4 or 5 team next season in the B1G. If he doesn’t, the Hoosiers are going to have to find another big-time scorer.”

Last season, Jackson-Davis averaged 18.3 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists per contest. He helped lead the Hoosiers to their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2016 under first-year head coach Mike Woodson.

Indiana has the B1G’s top-ranked recruiting class coming into Bloomington in 2022, ranking No. 5 nationally. There’s no question, though, Jackson-Davis’ potential return would make IU even tougher next season.
