2021 NBA Draft early entries, declarations: Ohio State’s CJ Walker announces he won’t return to school

As the offseason in college basketball continues, the list of players entering the NBA Draft process is steadily growing. And with the deadline to declare for underclassmen set for May 31, we’re expecting the list to continue expanding over the next month. Over the past weekend alone, college stars such as Texas Tech’s Mac McClung and Purdue’s Trevion Williams have declared for the draft.

Some of those who have already declared have gone all-in by declaring and announcing intentions to sign with an agent. They include Cade Cunningham, Keon Johnson, Ayo Dosunmu and Jeremiah Robinson-Earl. Others, like McClung and Williams, have done so to test the waters with the intent to keep their option of returning to college open. Doing so allows players to seek opinions from NBA decision-makers on their draft stock.

The list who have declared already exceeds several dozen. As players continue to enter their name into the draft ring, we’ll continue updating this tracker below with our current projections attached. Please note that a player entering the draft does not preclude them from returning to college, nor does signing with an agent in many cases so long as the agent is NCAA-certified.
