Teddy Allen Staying in NBA Draft, Officially Ends Long Collegiate Career



Teddy Allen’s college basketball career is finally over. Allen told CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein that he will keep his name in the 2022 NBA draft, forgoing the rest of his college eligibility. Allen had one year of eligibility remaining and entered the transfer portal after a great season at New Mexico State.

Allen spent one season with the West Virginia basketball program from 2017-18 averaging 7.0 points, 2.7 rebounds on 47 percent shooting from the field.

Following his freshman year at WVU, Allen was granted his release and transferred to Wichita State. The Mesa, AZ, native sat out a year before being dismissed from WSU’s program in 2019 after being arrested. Allen then went on to play at Western Nebraska CC (JUCO) and Nebraska before transferring once more to New Mexico State during the 2021 offseason.

During his one season with the Aggies, Allen won the WAC Player of the Year award and led New Mexico State to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Allen averaged 19.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.5 assists. Allen entered the transfer portal once more in April for his final year of college basketball but ended up keeping his name into the NBA draft.

The 2022 NBA Draft combine is taking place in Chicago right now, with the draft taking place on June 23 in Brooklyn.
