Ike Anigbogu
UCLA freshman Ike Anigbogu (6'10''-F/C-98) has decided to declare for the 2017 NBA draft, a source tells Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports. Although Anigbogu won't sign with an agent right away, it would be a surprise if he doesn't keep his name in the draft, since he's 'trending up,' tweets Evan Daniels of Scout.com. A 6'10' center, Anigbogu is just 18 years old and remains very raw, particularly on the offensive end. He played sparingly in his first season for the Bruins, averaging just 13.0 minutes per game and contributing modest numbers when he saw the court, with 4.7 PPG, 4.0 RPG, and 1.2 BPG. Although he's a project of sorts and had next to no impact in this year's NCAA tournament, Anigbogu is still drawing interest from several NBA teams who believes he has 'enormous' upside, per ESPN's Chad Ford. Anigbogu comes in at No. 31 on Ford's big board at ESPN, while he cracks the top 20 over at DraftExpress - Jonathan Givony currently has the UCLA big man at No. 19 on his big board. Anigbogu is the latest addition to our list of early entrants for the 2017 draft. That list currently exceeds 65 names, and figures to grow up until April 24, the early entry deadline. After that time, it will start shrinking again, as some players decide to withdraw their names from the draft pool.
