UT San Antonio Roadrunners talent Christian Wilson has withdrawn from the 2017 NBA Draft, a source told FanRag Sports on Tuesday. He had originally entered the 2017 NBA Draft, but did so without hiring an agent. By not signing any professional representation, he retained his eligibility.
Wilson, who did not play at all last season, had a very productive 2015-16 campaign. He was suspended indefinitely prior to the start of the season following an arrest.
By the time the 2015-16 season was over, he averaged 16.8 points, 4.6 assists and 4.1 rebounds per game. He would also shoot 39 percent from the floor and 21 percent from beyond the arc.
The Roadrunners finished the 2016-17 season with an overall record of 14-19. It was the first year of the Steve Henson era. The program has not gone to the NCAA Tournament since the 2010-11 campaign.
As for other players in the process who have not yet signed with an agent, they have until the May 24 deadline to decide if they want to return to the collegiate ranks. For some context, the deadline to withdraw from the NBA Draft is 10 days after the combine.
The NBA Draft will set its lottery slotting on Tuesday evening.
