Trayce Jackson-Davis is going through senior night, doesn’t plan to return next season

While it’s no major surprise, Trayce Jackson-Davis broke some news on Saturday after Indiana’s 71-68 win over Illinois.

The senior forward, who may end a first team All-American after a highly productive season, told Stadium’s Jeff Goodman he is planning to go through senior night when IU hosts Michigan on March 5.

“I am indeed going through senior night,” Jackson-Davis told Goodman.

“I feel like it kind of speaks for itself, but I feel like four years is enough for me. Sometimes you’ve got to move on.  I’m grateful for my time here, and I’ll say the rest during senior night.”

The Greenwood, Ind. product has a fifth year of eligibility remaining due to the COVID-19 pandemic that he will forego.

Jackson-Davis has already become the program’s all-time leader in blocked shots and is on track to become the all-time leader in rebounds.  During the win over Illinois on Saturday he passed head coach Mike Woodson on the all-time scoring list and now stands No. 5 all-time with 2,081 points.

“I couldn’t be more proud of a young man than Trayce today,” Woodson said after the win over Illinois.  “That record has — I’ve been sitting in that spot for a long time, and for him to surpass it, man, it’s special.”

Jackson-Davis has appeared in recent mock NBA Drafts as a second round selection.
