Caitlin Clark has announced she will enter the 2024 WNBA draft and forgo her final season of eligibility at Iowa. Clark was eligible to return for a fifth season via the COVID-19 waiver.

Clark is the projected No. 1 pick, which is held by the Indiana Fever.

"While this season is far from over and we have a lot more goals to achieve, it will be my last one at Iowa," Clark wrote. "I am excited to be entering the 2024 WNBA Draft.

"It is impossible for me to fully express my gratitude to everyone who has supported me during my time at Iowa -- my teammates, who made the last four years the best; my coaches, trainers and staff who always let me be me; Hawkeye fans who filled Carver every night; and everyone who came out to support us across the country, especially young kids."

The Fever also owed the No. 1 pick in 2023 when they selected Aliyah Boston.

Clark is averaging 32.2 points and 8.7 assists per game.
