Former Penn State Hoops Guard Izaiah Brockington Declares For 2022 NBA Draft

Former Penn State men’s basketball player Izaiah Brockington is forgoing his extra year of eligibility and declaring for the 2022 NBA Draft, he announced on his Twitter page Monday morning.

Brockington, who transferred to Iowa State prior to the 2021-22 season, has one year of eligibility remaining due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, he’ll instead try his luck at the next level.

“I will be hiring an agent and entering my name in the 2022 NBA draft,” he wrote. “It has always been a dream of mine since I was a kid to compete in the NBA and with your support, I’m one step closer.”

Brockington played two years in Happy Valley after a one-year stint with St. Bonaventure. The guard averaged 10.1 points and 3.7 rebounds while playing 24.8 minutes per game for the Nittany Lions.

He started all 35 games for the Cyclones this season and helped lead them to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament. Brockington averaged 16.9 points and 6.8 rebounds per game and shot 45% from the field in his only season donning an Iowa State uniform.

Early mock drafts project Brockington to be in undrafted territory. However, there’s still plenty of time for the Philadelphia native to boost his stock ahead of the June 23 draft.
