Iowa State guard and Oshkosh North grad Tyrese Haliburton is declaring for the NBA Draft.

Reports surfaced on Tuesday morning that Haliburton had declared, and the prospect posted a video announcing his decision on Twitter a short time later.

Haliburton’s season was cut short this year due to a broken wrist. In all Haliburton played in 22 games, and averaged 15.2 points per game with 6.5 assists.

Despite the injury some mock drafts have Haliburton as high as the seventh overall prospect.

The Oshkosh North product led the Spartans to a division one state championship back in 2018, and was named the Wisconsin Gatorade Player of the Year.

Haliburton can still withdraw from the draft by June 15th, and return to school if he wants.
