Ty Jerome Leaves Virginia For 2019 NBA Draft

Apr 15, 2019 12:17 PM

Ty Jerome will hire an agent and leave Virginia for the 2019 NBA Draft.

Jerome is a projected late first round or early second round pick.

"After talking to my family, coaching staff and thinking about it a lot, I've decided to forgo my senior year of college and declare for the 2019 NBA draft," Jerome said in the video. "From Day 1, I always dreamed about playing at this level since I picked up a basketball, playing in the ACC, playing against Duke and [North] Carolina. This program was everything I could have possibly dreamed of."

"He's gone," said one source close to the program.

Virginia Favored To Repeat As NCAA Men's Basketball Champions In 2020

Apr 9, 2019 1:56 AM

Two sportsbooks posted Virginia as the favorites to repeat as NCAA men's basketball champions next season.

Caesars Palace already had Virginia as 5-1 favorites before the title game. The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook placed Virginia and Kentucky as co-favorites at 7-1 odds.

"Virginia's only loss to graduation is reserve big man Jack Salt, so they will be stacked again next year if no one leaves for the NBA. You always have to stay conservative with Duke and Kentucky until you know who is leaving and where the unsigned recruits are going. I'd much rather open too low and bump a team when guys leave than open too high and take a sharp bet when they unexpectedly come back to school," said Matt Lindeman, manager of trading at Caesars.
