Auburn star Isaac Okoro is officially keeping his name in the NBA Draft but what do draft experts and scouts think of him.
On October 16, Auburn freshman Isaac Okoro will likely be the Tigers’ first-ever one-and-done prospect. On Monday, the 19-year-old small forward officially announced that he would be keeping his name in the NBA Draft and would not return to The Plains for a sophomore season.
As much as Auburn fans would’ve loved to have the star forward for another year, Okoro’s decision is probably the right one as he is currently seen as one of the better prospects in the 2020 draft class and at only 19 years old, Okoro’s potential has already enticed many scouts and draft experts.
In his one season at Auburn, Okoro, who came to Auburn as the No. 36 recruit in the class of 2019, averaged 12.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game while shooting 51.4 percent from the field.
Okoro was also a major part in Auburn putting up a 25-6 record last season but going into the next chapter of his career, what is being said about Auburn’s star prospect?
