Dennis Schroeder To Enter Draft

April 19 2013 at 5:15pm CDT By Chuck Myron

German point guard Dennis Schroeder will enter the draft, agent Ademola Okulaja tells Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress.com (Twitter link). The speedy 6'2" 19-year-old projects as a second-rounder who could climb into the first, as Chad Ford of ESPN.com ranks him 55th overall among draft prospects, while Givony tabs him 31st.

Schroeder is taking part in the Nike Hoop Summit set for tomorrow in Portland, as Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports tweets. The event pits top American high school seniors against a team of some of the best players age 19 and under from around the world.

A strong performance tomorrow could help Schroeder ascend draft boards, but if he falters, he can withdraw from the draft anytime before June 17th and continue playing overseas. College students who've declared for the draft can no longer pull out and return to school now that this week's deadline to do so has passed.
