Morgantown, West Virginia – Moments ago, former West Virginia forward Oscar Tshiebwe announced what he will do with his immediate future.
Tshiebwe, who won the National Player of the Year Award two years ago and averaged 16.5 points and 13.7 rebounds per game for the Kentucky Wildcats last season, will declare for the 2023 NBA Draft while maintaining his college eligibility.
Essentially, Tshiebwe will learn from NBA scouts and executives where he will be projected in the draft and if he isn’t comfortable with his projection, he can return to Kentucky for one more season.
Although Tshiebwe has been wildly successful in college, his lack of shooting ability and size has led many to believe whether his game will translate at the next level or not.
