Jay Scrubb Rumors

There have been rumors that you might consider foregoing your remaining years of college eligibility to enter this year’s NBA draft. Any truth to those rumors? Jay Scrubb: Although I have always dreamt of playing for Louisville, my ultimate dream has always been to play in the NBA. If I’m given an opportunity to get drafted, I’m going to take it. To be clear, you have plans to enter your name in the 2020 NBA Draft? Jay Scrubb: Yes, I am going to enter my name in the 2020 NBA Draft.
If an NBA team decides to draft you and next season they assign you to spend time with their G-League affiliate, how would you feel about that? Jay Scrubb: I would look at it as an opportunity to learn and improve. I’m planning on playing this game for a long time. If a team drafts me I will follow their lead in how they want to develop me as a player. Is going to Louisville next season still a possibility? Jay Scrubb: Yes, absolutely. I’m going to do whatever I possibly can to put myself in a situation to be drafted this year. If the process doesn’t go as I hope then going to Louisville next season is definitely an option I’d like to keep open.
When Jay Scrubb arrived on the University of Louisville campus for his official visit Sept. 27, he was already sold on playing basketball for the Cardinals. The nation’s top junior college prospect was completely won over after attending Louisville Live and playing pickup with the Cards, and on Sept. 28 committed to Louisville’s 2020 signing class. But Scrubb “absolutely” still intends to test the 2020 NBA draft waters this spring, his father told the Courier Journal.
