De’Andre Hunter withdraws from NBA Draft Combine

De’Andre Hunter national titleDon’t get too excited, but, yes, the star of UVA’s national-championship win, De’Andre Hunter, has withdrawn from the NBA Draft Combine.

Hunter, a redshirt sophomore, is a projected Top 10 pick in the upcoming draft, with the mock drafts having him going as high as #4 in the first round.

He’s not withdrawing because he’s had a change of heart about leaving for the NBA. Players of Hunter’s stature withdraw from the combine because, in essence, they don’t need to go.

Sorry for the headline getting your hopes up.
