The youngest player in college basketball this season, Primo averaged 8.1 points and 3.4 rebounds per game on .431/.381/.750 shooting splits as a freshman at Alabama. He was named to the Southeastern Conference (SEC) All-Freshman Team alongside the likes of Moses Moody, Sharife Cooper and Keon Johnson.
Primo saw his stock rise with a strong performance at the 2021 NBA Draft Combine.

"Primo is seen as a moldable prospect with above-average size for his position," wrote NBA.com's draft expert Kyle Irving . "His biggest strength is his perimeter shooting, knocking down shots with confidence from anywhere beyond the arc, flashing some range beyond there as well.
"He has developed as a shot creator with a raw ability to put the ball on the floor and pull up for jumpers or use his size to finish at the rim."
