Villanova freshman forward Cam Whitmore, a projected top-10 pick, is entering the 2023 NBA Draft, he told Shams Charania of Stadium.
Whitmore is 6-foot-7 and had a fairly up-and-down season, but is still viewed as a prospect with great upside. In 26 games with the Wildcats, he averaged 12.5 points and 5.3 rebounds. He turns 19 years old in June.
“First and foremost, I just want to thank God for allowing me to be in this position I am in today and just allowing me to guide me in the right steps to be a successful man,” Whitmore told Charania. “I just want to thank my parents, my mom and my dad for always striving to encourage me to be the best person I can be.”
He added: “I want to thank my teammates and coaches at Villanova University for allowing me and encouraging me to be a better basketball player and a complete basketball player.”
