Well, it’s official. What many of us assumed would happened has. Isaiah Roby will enter the NBA Draft which will be held on June 20th. He had until today to decide whether or not he would return to the University of Nebraska and play one final season for the Cornhuskers.

Roby was a talented three start commit coming out of Dixon, IL. He was considered one of coach Tim Mile’s best recruits during his tenure at Nebraska. While he had sparks of greatness his first two years he really did not shine until this past season. His playing time and stats jump considerably over the season and made himself into an impact player in the conference.

Roby will finish his career at Nebraska with 11.8 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game this past year. He was third in the Big Ten in blocked shots and ninth in steals and the only player in the conference to be ranked in the top ten in both.

We wish Roby the best of luck with his future and hopefully he will land with a good team in the NBA Draft.
