UC's Evans will reportedly stay in NBA Draft, which is no surprise with stock rising
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - There was some skepticism surrounding University of Cincinnati junior Jacob Evans declaring for the NBA Draft, but with his stock quickly rising and a recent invite to the upcoming NBA Scouting Combine he is reportedly going to keep his name in the Draft.
The report from YahooSports.com, quoted Evans as saying: "The NBA is a lifelong dream and I am making every day count to make the most of it. I’m excited about the feedback that I have received in this process so far. I can’t wait to lace up my kicks in Chicago and show all of the teams what I can do."
Evans will participate in the draft combine in Chicago from May 16-20.
There are some NBA Draft sites and recent Mock Drafts that have Evans going as high as No. 21 overall.
The 6-foot-6 Evans averaged 13 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.9 blocked shots per game last season for the Bearcats.
