BYU junior guard Jimmer Fredette has decided to enter the NBA Draft. However, Fredette will not hire an agent, leaving open the option of returning to the Cougars for his senior season.
“I’ve decided to put my name in the draft to explore my options with the NBA at this time,” Fredette said in a release. “I’m not hiring an agent to give me the opportunity to come back to BYU. I’m excited for this opportunity to see how I compare with the best players in the nation and to gain feedback on how I can improve as a basketball player.”
Fredette averaged 22.1 points and 4.7 rebounds last season, garnering All-American honors by multiple outlets. He scored 37 points in the Cougars’ first-round win over Florida in the NCAA Tournament, and also poured in a McKale Center record 49 points against Arizona.
