Declares for NBA Draft Shackelford announced Thursday night via his personal Twitter account that he will be entering the 2021 NBA Draft while still maintaining his college eligibility.
Impact Shackelford has been a key cog over the last two years during Alabama's resurgence as one of the country's elite programs. The 6-3 sophomore averaged 14.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.3 threes and 1.7 assists in 29.4 minutes per game since arriving in Tuscaloosa in 2019. After leading the Tide in scoring this past season, Shackelford will try to figure out where he stands in the eyes of NBA team officials before making a final decision on whether he will move forward or return to college for another year. Should he end up coming back, Shackelford will have three years of eligibility remaining.
