Dozier decided to "fully commit to a professional career over the weekend," according to that report. The 6-foot-6 guard is a projected second-round pick after averaging 13.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists as a sophomore. One obvious issue with NBA scouts is that the former McDonald's All-American shot only 27.7 percent from 3-point range in two years of college.
This development guarantees South Carolina will be without three of its four top scorers -- most notably Sindarius Thornwell -- from the team that made a surprising run to the 2017 Final Four. Frank Martin's leading returning scorer will now be Chris Silva. The 6-9 sophomore averaged 10.2 points and 6.1 rebounds this season.
