Indiana star Trayce Jackson-Davis discusses future plans
There are a couple options Trayce Jackson-Davis has to consider this offseason. The Indiana star and first-team All-B1G selection has plenty to think about over the coming weeks after the program decided to move on from head coach Archie Miller.
But right now, Jacks0n-Davis is taking his time.
In a recent interview with the Indianapolis Star, Jackson-Davis was asked about his future plans in basketball. Will he return to Indiana for another season? Declare for the 2021 NBA Draft? Maybe transfer to another school now that there’s been a change at head coach?
“Right now, my future is undecided,” Jackson-Davis told the Indianapolis Star. “I want to see who they are going to bring in and then take my time from there. What happens with the [NBA Draft], I haven’t really thought about yet. It’s on the table and I’ll weigh all my options. But I’m not committed to doing that right now. I’m just waiting to see who they hire.”
Jackson-Davis also said that he was surprised how quickly Indiana decided to move on from Miller, but was not shocked by the decision based on IU’s lack of NCAA Tournament appearances and poor play against B1G teams.
This season, Jackson-Davis was a star for the Hoosiers. He averaged 19.1 points, 9 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game in his second year in Bloomington. But his stellar season wasn’t enough to get IU into the NCAA Tournament, as the team finished 12-15 with a 6-game losing streak to close out the year.
While Jackson-Davis is undoubtedly a player who can succeed at the next level, he’s not going to rush into any decision. And he hasn’t ruled out a return to IU just yet.
