A Dream City Christian product out of Glendale, Arizona, Traore is listed at 6-10, 225 pounds and rated 5-stars, the top player in his state, No. 4 center and No. 15 prospect overall nationally in the class of 2022. In addition to Auburn and LSU, Traore also had offers from 17 other schools, including Arkansas and Tennessee.
