The 5-star freshman will begin his pro career
Thank you for all the love and support this year. I will forever be a Demon Deacon, and hope to represent God, my family and this school in the best way possible. #GoDeacs #Blessed #NPDTV pic.twitter.com/7UtNGEYyNf— Jaylen Hoard (@JaylenHoard) April 20, 2019
The 6-8 freshman average 13.1 points and 7.6 rebounds in 30 minutes per game last season. His production is going to be difficult to replace for the 2019-2020 season, especially for a team that already didn’t have a lot of depth in the front court.
With this news, the commit of 2019 3-star PF Tariq Ingraham makes a lot more sense, as he would have initially put the Deacs over the scholarship limit next season.
I’m sure I speak for all Wake Forest fans when I say that I wish Jaylen the best in the future and hope that he is able to have a long, successful career in the NBA.
