The 6’3” guard entered his name into the NBA Draft and had until 11:59 pm tonight to withdraw. Most projections had him going undrafted, though there was some buzz late last week that he had impressed teams in an individual workout.
In a conversation with Evan Daniels of Scout.com, Briscoe said, “There’s a better chance for my dream to come true. I feel like I’ll be able to showcase my talent and I trust Cal. I 100-percent know that Cal understands what he’s doing.”
As a freshman, Briscoe averaged 9.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game.
Marcus Lee has still not made his decision.
