Iowa's Joe Wieskamp reportedly makes call on 2021 NBA Draft
Joe Wieskamp has reportedly made a decision on his future.
Friday afternoon, Jon Rothstein reported that Wieskamp intends to keep his name in the 2021 NBA Draft and not return to college. He spent three seasons with the Hawkeyes and decided to test the waters of the professional ranks after a big year in 2020-21.
Wieskamp was not expected to be a player on a lot of radars when he entered the draft, but he’s been on the rise since the draft combine. His stock has climbed and now might be the best time to capitalize on the opportunity.
