Another UCF Knight is NBA Draft-bound.

UCF freshman forward Isaiah Adams announced on his Instagram page yesterday that he will enter his name into the 2021 NBA Draft.

UCF Men’s Basketball confirmed this news on their Twitter page this morning.

In his freshman campaign, Adams averaged 9.9 points per game and 3.9 rebounds per game while starting 12 games for the Knights.

His strongest performance of the year came in late February against Tulane where he scored a season-high 26 points on 10-11 shooting in an 84-81 win on the road.

While Adams has entered his name in the Draft, there is still a chance he could return to UCF for his sophomore season.

Adams has not announced that he has hired an agent, which means he is still eligible to return to UCF. He has until July 19 at 5 p.m. EST to stay in the Draft or withdraw his name.

Given that players have until May 30 to enter their name into the Draft, don’t be surprised if players like sophomores Darin Green Jr. and C.J. Walker enter their names into the Draft as well.

Green Jr. entered his name in the 2020 Draft along with Collin Smith before ultimately choosing to return to UCF.
