Cincinnati junior guard Jacob Evans will declare for the 2018 NBA Draft, he announced on Sunday.
The 6-foot-6 Evans is one of the most versatile players in the country the past few years for the Bearcats. Evans is a potential first-round pick in the upcoming draft.
Evans will not sign with an agent, initially, but he is entering the draft with the intention of going to the NBA if he’s a first-round pick, according to a story from ESPN’s Jonathan Givony. Likely protecting himself from a potential injury that could hurt his stock, it looks likely that Evans might stick in this draft. Evans is currently regarded as a late first-round pick in multiple mock drafts and workouts could push him up.
Averaging 13.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game this season, Evans shot 37 percent from three-point range while also making an impact on the defensive side of the ball.
