The nation’s No. 1 Junior College prospect and Louisville commit Jay Scrubb is declaring from NBA Draft, his father Jason Scrubb tells 247Sports.
“We’re still deciding on an agent and also if it’s in his best interest to sign,” the elder Scrubb said. “That will come with more information from the NBA.”
Scrubb, a 6-foot-6, 205-pound wing, committed to Louisville in mid-September, but his plan, according to his father, was to always test the NBA waters and go through the process. That process is likely going to be delayed due to the Coronavirus.
“Jay’s focus right now is trying to be a pro player, and we want the NBA to take him seriously,” Scrubb said. “Some execs aren’t sure if he’s going to go to school or try for the NBA. With the timeline we don’t know when we would hear from the NBA.”
“He wants to be a pro athlete, but he does love Louisville,” he added.
Scrubb averaged 21.9 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.7 assists a game this past season at John A. Logan College. Scrubb connected on 41 of his 123 three-point attempts this past season. As a freshman at Logan, Scrubb put up 20.2 points a game and made 46.4 percent of his three-pointers.
The last Junior College player to get drafted was former Louisville commit Donta Smith, who went in the second round to the Atlanta Hawks.
