Indiana junior Yogi Ferrell will announce his decision on whether he will enter the 2015 NBA draft on Saturday, April 25, his father Kevin Ferrell Sr. confirmed on Monday.
Ferrell will make his announcement at the Ruth’s Chris Steak House on the northside of Indianapolis during an exclusive dinner, which will include friends and family.
“We want to make sure that we give ourselves enough time to make a very educated decision and not rush into things,” Ferrell Sr. said. “This was a difficult year for him but he had an outstanding season, so we just don’t want to rush and make a hasty decision in that regard.”
The NBA early entry deadline is Sunday, April 26 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
According to multiple NBA mock drafts, Ferrell is projected to be anywhere from a second round pick to perhaps missing on a draft selection entirely.
In his junior season at Indiana, the 6-foot Ferrell recorded 16.3 points and 4.9 assists per game, earning a first team all-Big Ten honors. And according to Ferrell Sr., following his successful junior campaign, the family has heard from a few NBA teams who have expressed interest.
