2022 NBA Draft underclassmen decision tracker: Drew Timme, TyTy Washington declare after freshman seasons


With the 2022 NCAA Tournament officially in the books, the NBA Draft scene beginning to heat up at breakneck pace. We’ve already seen a number of this year’s top underclassmen prospects enter their names into the draft well ahead of the entry deadline at 11:59 p.m. ET on April 24, and now nearly half of the top-60 on the CBS Sports Big Board have formally declared.

The names continue to get bigger as we get closer to the deadline. Jabari Smith, Jaden Ivey and Johnny Davis — top five prospects on our board — entered their name into the draft after breakout sophomore seasons. Kentucky guard TyTy Washington is also now in the mix after a strong one-and-done season. Together, they join a growing list of likely first-rounders already testing the draft process that includes Ohio State’s E.J. Liddell, Iowa’s Keegan Murray and LSU’s Tari Eason.

More top underclassmen talents will likely be joining this list soon in the coming days and weeks ahead of the April 24 deadline. With so many top talents playing deep into the NCAA Tournament, though — like KU’s Ochai Agbaji and Christian Braun or Duke’s Paolo Banchero, Mark Williams and AJ Griffin — they could be later decisions to drop in the process.

As the list grows we’ll continue this updated tracker to give you a full scope of what the draft landscape looks like ahead of this summer. Keep in mind that not only is this list is expected to grow, but underclassmen that declare — even if they sign with an agent — are still eligible to return to college. The withdrawal deadline this year is nearly one month after the combine, scheduled for 5 p.m. ET on June 13.
