Meanwhile, Deon stroud is following Orlando Robinson’s lead and entering his name into consideration for this summer’s NBA draft.

The Fresno State sophomore guard announced that news on his Instagram page Wednesday, but will retain the option to return for his junior season.

The athletic Fresno native averaged about 12 points and four rebounds a game last season for the Bulldogs.

“One of my goals is to play in the NBA,” Stroud said in a press release. “By declaring for the NBA Draft, I’ll be able to get feedback from NBA teams on if I am ready now or what I need to keep working on to get there. I love playing for the Bulldogs and our team really feels we are in a great position to battle anyone next season.”

“Deon’s looking to get feedback and we support him in this process,” Fresno State head coach Justin Hutson said in the release.
