Okoro who has signed with Young Money APAA and Lifestyle Sports Agency, will remain in the NBA Draft pool.
The 6-foot-6 freshman forward out of Auburn, was a highly recruited prospect out of high school who showcased a high ceiling in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League.
In his lone college season as a freshman, Okoro averaged 12.9 points and 4.4 rebounds per game on 51.4% shooting from the field. An outstanding two-way player, with draft boards having him selected as high as No.5 overall.
In an interview with Jason Jordan of Sports Illustrated, Okoro said that remaining in the draft was the “best move” for him. Okoro has until June 3rd to withdraw his name from the draft, with the draft currently scheduled for June 25th.
