Anfernee Simons is a top-10 recruit in the class of 2018, but he is actually taking a year in a post-graduate program at IMG Academy. Now, he’s being declared eligible for the 2018 NBA Draft since he will technically be a year removed from high school and will be 19 years old by the time June comes around.
The 6-foot-4, 177-pound guard is ranked as the No. 8 overall recruit in the country and No. 2 point guard according to ESPN. He was originally committed to Louisville until backing out of it due to the FBI probe into several basketball programs. Now, he could end up going into the draft rather than find another school and commit there to play for a season.
