Baylor posted a 27-7 record, with Sochan as the No. He was the NCAA tournament's No. 1 seed and established himself as one of college football's best defenders.
Sochan said that the season was filled with ups and also downs. “We were unfortunate with injuries, but it provided me the opportunity to learn and showed the NBA my toughness as well as versatility on both ends. I entered this season with the intention to improve myself and help the team win.
Sochan is a unique child of a Polish mother and an American father. They were both born in Oklahoma to a Polish mother and played college basketball at Division 2 Panhandle State. Sochan moved to England when he was just 15 years old, and has lived there his entire life.
He made his debut at the FIBA U16 European Championship Division B 2019 in Poland, winning MVP honors and leading Poland to a first-place finish. Shortly after, he moved to Indiana's La Lumiere School. But, due to the pandemic in Europe, he decided to return home and join Ratiopharm Ulm in Germany his senior year.

However, he showed more polished flashes as an athlete, ball-handler, passer, and shooter that suggest good things ahead.

Sochan, who is still 19 years old, is one of the most promising prospects for the draft. His growth has allowed him to play some time as a Diaw-style, modern small-ball center with perimeter ability, which gives him upside that he can use as his career develops.
Sochan stated, “I look forward to showing NBA teams my mature game and how quickly I adapt to new environments.” “Also my shot consistency, and how I can help on the offensive side.”
