Kevin Samuel Rumors
Junior center Kevin Samuel announced his intentions to test the 2021 NBA Draft waters on Monday night. Samuel, who is scheduled to graduate this spring, posted a lengthy message on his Twitter account about his decision. In part, it read: “I’ve decided to enter the NBA Draft while maintaining my college eligibility.”
TCU center Kevin Samuel is returning for his junior season. Samuel was evaluated by the NBA’s Undergraduate Advisory Committee (UAC) and decided not to test the NBA Draft waters.
At 6-foot-11, 250 pounds, TCU center Kevin Samuel has the size and potential to play in the NBA one day. He tested the draft waters last offseason before opting to return for a redshirt sophomore season to further his development. Now, a year later, will he continue his development as a junior next season at TCU? “I’m not sure yet,” Samuel said. “I’ll talk with the coaches about it and talk to my people about it and see what’s best for me to do.”
