BYU Star Yoeli Childs Declares For The 2020 NBA Draft

BYU star Yoeli Childs has decided to sign with Keith Kreiter and Sam Cipriano of Edge Sports. Childs hired Kreiter and Edge Sports last year as well after declaring for the NBA Draft as a junior. Childs ended up pulling his name out of the draft to return to BYU, the improper paperwork with the NCAA lead to a nine-game suspension at the beginning of 2019-20 season.

Edge Sports currently has three clients that are on NBA rosters. The last time BYU had a player drafted to the NBA was 2011 when Jimmer Fredette was selected by the Sacremento Kings. The likely strategy for Childs and his representation would be an invitation to the NBA Combine.

Childs averaged 22.2 points per game and 9 rebounds while shooting a career-best 48.9 percent from three in the 2019-20 season.
