Robert Woodard II is leaving Mississippi State for the 2020 NBA Draft.
"I am going into the draft with the intention of not going back to school," Woodard told ESPN. "I am maintaining my eligibility because of the uncertainty about the dates and what workouts will look like, but I don't look it at is as testing the waters. I am all-in with this thing."
Woodard is the No. 24 prospect in the ESPN Top 100.
"Right now I am back home in Columbus, Mississippi," he said. "At first, I was just trying to wrap my head around what happened, but now it's back to work. I'm in the gym, shooting, working on my ballhandling and doing physical training with conditioning and weights. I have a saying: 'Stay ready so you don't have to get ready.'
"I've been watching film, focusing on both ends of the floor, my own games to see what I can do to improve, as well as my personal favorite, Kawhi Leonard. I like studying how efficient he is on both ends. The way he uses angles on offense and defense. He doesn't need too many dribbles to impact the game."
