Alabama freshman JD Davison announced that he will declare for the 2022 NBA draft. Davison didn’t state if he would be hiring an agent but told Jonathan Givony of ESPN that he is “done with college.”
Davison, who was named to the SEC All-Freshman team, averaged 8.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.3 assists and one steal in 33 games. He led the Crimson Tide in assists and finished seventh in the SEC among all players in that category.
The 6-foot-3 guard is projected to be a second-round pick given his elite athleticism and explosiveness to create for himself. His best game of the season came on Dec. 4 when he produced a career-high 20 points in a win over then-No. 3 Gonzaga.

Davison struggled to shoot from deep, converting only 30.1% on 3.9 attempts per game. Despite those concerns, Davison should earn some looks from teams that have development opportunities given his raw athleticism and ability on offense.
He will have the opportunity to participate in private workouts with teams to improve his draft stock over the next two months. He also figures to be a strong candidate to earn an invitation to take part in the draft combine or NBA G League Elite Camp next month.
The NBA draft will take place on June 23.
