“It’s been a life-long dream of mine to play at the highest level,” Terry wrote in a statement. “After many conversations with the people closest to me, I’ve decided to remain in the 2022 NBA Draft. Wildcat Nation, I cannot thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me.”
The 6’7″ guard is ranked as the No. 23 selection in this year’s draft, per the latest edition of the ESPN big board. Terry could climb higher — Bobby Marks of ESPN says (via Twitter) that he wouldn’t be surprised if the 19-year-old becomes a lottery pick.
During the 2021/22 NCAA season, Terry averaged 8.0 PPG, 4.8 RPG and 3.9 APG across 37 contests, all starts, boasting shooting splits of .502/.354/.736. He was named to the Pac-12 All-Defensive Team and an All Pac-12 Honorable Mention.
As Jeff Goodman of Stadium tweets, Terry joins projected lottery pick Bennedict Mathurin and center Christian Koloko, listed as the No. 43 prospect on the current ESPN big board, as departing Arizona underclassmen in this year’s draft.
