LAWRENCE, Kan. (KSNT) – Kansas sophomore point guard Devon Dotson will enter the NBA Draft with the intention of foregoing his final two years of eligibility.
Dotson announced the decision Monday on his Instagram page.
“This decision came about from what Devon’s goals were last year and what he was told by NBA personnel on what he needed to improve on,” Kansas head coach Bill Self said. “And then he goes out and has an All-American year. I believe this was going to be a decision he made regardless of NBA feedback, but the NBA feedback he has received has been positive and I concur with him that this is the right time to pursue a professional career.”
Dotson helped guide the Jayhawks to the #1 ranking in the country and the Big 12 regular-season championship. Dotson led the Big 12 in scoring averaging 18.1 points per game and also averaged 4 assists per game.
