His stock was high enough to go in the first round of the draft after his Junior year at UNC. At that point, he would have been a 23 year old rookie in the NBA. But he chose to finish the degree. Still, I think being older throughout his basketball development provided better options that might not have been available otherwise.
yikes, he was 20? that's quite old for first year post-secondary lol.
