The NBA’s two-day draft ended on Thursday, which means it’s time to look ahead to the 2025 edition of the draft. West Virginia forward Tucker DeVries was featured in SB Nation’s mock draft, going No. 30 in the first round.

SB Nation is very high on DeVries, with the Iowa native being the only senior listed in the first-round mock draft.

ESPN, CBS Sports and others released their mock drafts, some with two-round projections but DeVries did not make those lists.

DeVries (6-foot-7) averaged 21.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists for the Bulldogs this past season. DeVries shot 44% from the field, 36% from three and 81% from the free throw line. DeVries is the reigning back-to-back Missouri Valley Player of the Year. DeVries was regarded as a top transfer in the portal this offseason by many outlets, including analyst Andy Katz.

DeVries has one year of eligibility remaining and decided to join his dad at West Virginia.

“[My dad] certainly felt like this is a place he can be successful and excited to be a part of. And we were all in full support of that. For me to be able to come here my senior year, I’m really looking forward to it,” Tucker said in March.

DeVries did have shoulder surgery back in March.
