Guy’s post read, “Saying goodbye twice is not easy.. Charlottesville I just want to say thank you so much. I’ll never forget this. One day I will have the words. I am officially keeping my name in the draft. I know it’s the right step after much prayer and thought with my family.”
Guy averaged 15.4 PPG, 4.5 RPG and 2.1 APG for the national champions as a junior but the finality of his decision is a surprise, considering he’s not ranked among the Top 100 prospects by ESPN’s draft expert Jonathan Givony. His strongest attribute is his perimeter shooting prowess, as he made 42.6% of his 3-point attempts this past season.
The 6’2” Guy did have a strong run in the NCAA Tournament, including a 24-point outing against Texas Tech in the title game. He also had a 25-point, 10-rebound performance against Purdue in the Elite Eight.
Guy announced last week that he would test the draft waters.
