BLOOMINGTON, Indiana – Indiana Hoosiers top player Trace Jackson-Davies will enter the court next season after withdrawing from the NBA draft.
Jackson-Davis still has two years of eligibility and will start his senior season ranked 15th in the school’s career rankings with 1,565 points.
The 6-foot-9 forward was a Preseason All-American last fall, finishing sixth in the Big Ten with 18.3 points per game and 8.1 rebounds, and led the Hoosiers to a 21-14 mark and an NCAA Tournament appearance as a coach. Mike Woodson’s first season as a coach.
Jackson-Davis was the second Big Ten team to be selected by coaches and the media.
He is also ninth on Indiana’s career list in rebounds (797) and seventh in blocks (178).
“I look forward to returning to Indiana to be with my coaches and teammates and build on what we have achieved at the end of the season,” Jackson-Davies said in a statement released by the athletic department. “I have goals for our team and for myself on the court, but more importantly, at the end of next year, I will be proud to say that I am an IU graduate.”
