His fellow 2016 classmates De’Andre Hunter and Ty Jerome announced on Monday that they would be entering the 2019 NBA Draft. On Tuesday, Virginia Cavaliers guard Kyle Guy did the same—with one key difference.
Beyond blessed. Very excited for this journey. 5 out ❤️ Thanks to everyone who had a hand in this!!! pic.twitter.com/EBSspocjcj— Kyle J Guy (@kylejguy5) April 16, 2019
OK, two differences: his announcement wasn’t via an Instagram video, and it expressly leaves open the possibility of returning to school. Guy will have until May 29th to withdraw from the draft and terminate the relationship with his agent.
Guy was the 2016 Mr. Basketball for the state of Indiana out of Lawrence Central High School. He has shot better than 42 percent from three over his career at UVA, including 49.5 percent his first year.
Whenever his time in Charlottesville has concluded, Guy will be remembered for how he handled the 2018 NCAA Tournament loss to UMBC, and for sinking three clutch free throws with less than a second remaining to beat Auburn and propel the Hoos to the 2019 national championship game.
