Per his Twitter account, star Illini guard Ayo Dosunmu entered his name into the NBA Draft.
Now, much like the star center for the 2019-20 Illini, Kofi Cockburn, Ayo Dosunmu has not hired an agent. Recent projections have Dosunmu being selected in the second round and Cockburn not being selected at all. It is a smart decision on both of their parts because they then have the option to return to school for another year if they do not get selected when they want or at all.
Even if Illini nation has seen the last of Ayo Dosunmu in an Illinois uniform, they will not soon forget his contributions to the program. His clutch shots, agile drives to the hoop, lead-by-example mentality, and general presence in orange and blue have helped Illinois basketball return to prominence.
