CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Virginia redshirt sophomore guard De'Andre Hunter and junior guard Ty Jerome are both entering the NBA Draft. The announcements were made Monday via Instagram.
Hunter, who is considered to be a potential lottery pick, scored 27 points in the National Championship game to lead the Cavaliers to their first-ever national title. The Philadelphia, PA native averaged 15.2 points per game and 5.1 rebounds per contest during the 2018-2019 season.
Jerome, a 6'5" guard from New Rochelle, NY, averaged 13.6 points per game, 4.2 rebounds per game, and a team-high 5.4 assists per game during the 2018-2019 season.
Jerome is projected to be a late first-round pick by most NBA mock drafts.
