Mississippi State’s Reggie Perry Declares for NBA Draft

MSU’s super sophomore will try his hand at the next level

A season ago, Reggie Perry waited until the final day to remove his name from consideration for the NBA Draft. This time, there will be no going back, as Perry made his announcement he will leave Mississippi State after two seasons in Starkville.

Perry enjoyed an incredible sophomore campaign, netting 17.4 points and 10.1 rebounds per game, the only player in the SEC to average a double double. He was named first team All-SEC by both the coaches and the Associated Press, with the latter honoring him as SEC Player of the Year. He led the Bulldogs to a 20-11 record and a fourth place finish in the SEC, hovering on the edge of the NCAA Tournament before all postseason play was canceled.

Perry is the sixth Bulldog to leave the team this offseason, as freshmen Elias King and Devin Butts, juniors Prince Oduro and KeyShawn Feazell, and senior EJ Datcher have all announced they will be entering the transfer portal. Coach Ben Howland also awaits a decision by Perry’s fellow sophomore frontcourt mate Robert Woodard, who has been projected as high as 25th in some mock drafts.
