Isaiah Austin declares for NBA Draft

The 7-foot-1 sophomore Isaiah Austin is taking his talents to the next level. He declared for the NBA Draft after leading the Big 12 in blocks this past season.

Baylor’s head coach Scott Drew had nothing but great things to say about Austin.

“Our coaching staff really enjoyed working with Isaiah for his two years at Baylor University, and we want to thank him for his tremendous contributions to Baylor basketball,” head coach Scott Drew said. “His versatility and defensive prowess helped us win an NIT Championship and make a Sweet 16 appearance. He’s a tremendous player and a great role model in the community, and we look forward to watching him as he takes the next step to the NBA.”

Austin averaged 11.2 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.1 blocks this year.  He’s projected to go late 1st round to early 2nd round.
