As expected, Indiana’s Trayce Jackson-Davis formally declared for the 2023 NBA draft on Tuesday.

The 6-foot-9 forward played the last four seasons at Indiana for Archie Miller and Mike Woodson.

Here’s the full statement Jackson-Davis issued Tuesday:

“First and foremost I’d like to thank God for giving me the ability to play the game of basketball. I’d like to thank my mother and father for always looking out for me and making sure that I’m always on the right track. To Ari And Tay, I love you and I always got your guys back. Also, a huge thanks to Coach Woodson and Coach Miller for allowing me to leave my small mark on this amazing program. To every trainer that I had the pleasure to work with, a huge thanks to you as well.

“Indiana, I appreciate the life lessons and every experience this beautiful University has taught me. I have made relationships here that will last a lifetime. From the people, places and basketball it has truly been a pleasure to wear the cream and crimson. I will cherish this place and am happy to say I can call it my home.

“All my life it has been a dream of mine to play in the NBA. With that being said, I will forego my extra year of eligibility and go all in for the 2023 NBA Draft while continuing my representation with Excel Sports Management.


Trayce Jackson-Davis”
