Apr 15, 2022 12:56 PM

Jeremy Sochan will leave Baylor to enter the 2022 NBA Draft. Sochan will forgo his remaining eligibly by hiring agents.

"I am fortunate enough to be declaring for the 2022 NBA draft," Sochan told ESPN.

ESPN ranks him as the No. 14 prospect in the draft.

Sochan said he would sign with Jim Tanner and Deirunas Visockas of Tandem Sports.

"This season had a lot of ups and downs," Sochan said. "We were unlucky with injuries, but it was a great opportunity for me to grow and an opportunity to show the NBA my toughness and versatility on both ends. I came into this season with intentions to make myself better and help the team win."

No. 2 Recruit Keyonte George Commits To Baylor

Aug 9, 2021 3:39 PM

Keyonte George has announced his commitment to Baylor.

George, who cut his list back in May, chose the Bears over Texas, Oklahoma State, Kansas and Kentucky. He took official visits to four of his final five schools, with Kentucky the exception.

Texas had been the favorite for most of the spring, but a commitment from Arterio Morris in mid-July seemed to shift the chase to Baylor.

George is ranked No. 4 in the ESPN 100 for 2022 -- but will move up to No. 2 with the top two prospects, Emoni Bates and Jalen Duren, reclassifying into 2021.
