Virginia’s Ty Jerome will sign with an agent and enter the NBA Draft, according to Jerome’s Instagram page.
The junior was the third-leading scorer for a Cavalier team that went 35-3 on the year and earned a top seed in the NCAA Tournament. Jerome was also a significant piece of a Virginia team that won it’s first National Championship this season.
Averaging 16.5 PPG and 6 APG in the NCAA Tournament, Jerome provided a calming, steady presence on the court. At 6-foot-6 and 195 pounds, he has the size and shot-making ability to land on an NBA team.
According to NBA scouts, Jerome is a projected late first-round pick in June’s NBA Draft.
