Morgantown, West Virginia – According to a report by ESPN, Miles McBride has decided to enter his name in the 2021 NBA Draft with the possibility or returning to play for the West Virginia Mountaineers next season.
McBride averaged 15.8 points and 4.9 assists per game for the Mountaineers last season.
In a message on his personal social media account, McBride said the following: “First off I would like to thank God because without him none of this would be possible. From the first time I picked up a basketball, my dream has been to one day be in a position to play in the NBA.
After conversations with my family and WVU coaching staff, I have decided that I will be declaring for the 2021 NBA Draft. Thank you to everyone that has helped me get to this point. I’m excited to go through the process!”
With that said, it’s expected that he will likely return to West Virginia University for at least one more season after going through the process. However, if NBA scouts and executives believe that he will be drafted after his evaluation, it would be very hard to pass up on his dream.
Thank you Mountaineer Nation for welcoming me into your family 💛💙 pic.twitter.com/qQ4tIRVF8k
