Michigan State junior Xavier Tillman is entering the NBA Draft but not hiring an agent and could return back to East Lansing after the workout process.

Tillman, who averaged 13.7 points per game and 10.3 rebounds this season, announced his intention to declare for the draft on social media.

It is Tillman’s first time going through the NBA draft process. The 6-foot-8 big man will have until June 15th to decide whether to stay in the draft or return to school.

Projections for Tillman in the 2020 draft are all over the place. NBADraft.net doesn’t have him listed in their full mock draft, CBS has him at no. 21 on their Top 75 Big Board, and Bleacher Report has him going towards the end of the first round.

If Tillman comes back to East Lansing next season, expect Michigan State to be a top-10 team going into the 2020-’21 season.

Stay tuned to BTPowerhouse for the latest in Tillman’s decision.
