Miye Oni Declares For Draft

Yale University Junior Miye Oni announces he will enter the NBA draft

Miye Oni, the Junior from Yale University has announced he will be entering the NBA draft forgoing his last year of college eligibility. The 6’6″ shooting guard, brings a good blend of athleticism, basketball IQ, and the ability to shoot the outside shot. There will be many questions about the level of competition that the IVY brings to the table, but Oni has shown that he can do it against top tier talent in the limited opportunities. We currently have Oni at #49 in our mock draft and he is ranked as the 38th best available prospect on our big board. Oni could go in the first round with a strong showing at the combine and individual workouts, but as of now it would not be a surprise to see him selected in the second round. His projection as a solid shooter on the wing, with the ability to defend multiple positions could entice a team to take him earlier than expected. It was also said that he intends to hire an agent, erasing any possibility he might return to college after receiving feedback from NBA teams. Players like Oni who come from smaller schools can see their draft stock improve after the season is over and teams get a better idea of how they perform against other future professionals, and he is a candidate to move up as we get closer to draft day.
