Arizona's Grant Jerrett heading to the NBA
Arizona freshman Grant Jerrett is headed to the NBA and the school is expected to make an announcement on Thursday, sources told CBSSports.com.
The school released a statement late Wednesday night.
The 6-foot-10 Jerrett is extremely skilled, but struggled to adjust to the college game. Most of his production came from beyond the 3-point arc. In fact, 32 of his 63 field goals came from deep.
This is a baffling decision because multiple NBA executives told CBSSports.com that Jerrett is likely a second-rounder and could go undrafted. Sources also indicated Jerrett is likely to sign with Brian Dyke of Shibumi Sports.
Arizona can withstand the loss of Jerrett, especially with highly-touted freshman Aaron Gordon entering the program. The Wildcats also have sophomores Kaleb Tarczewski and Brandon Ashley back on the front line.
