WVU G Kedrian Johnson Enters Name into NBA Draft
WVU G Kedrian Johnson announced on Monday afternoon that he will be entering his name into the 2023 NBA Draft. Johnson released the following statement on social media.
“For starters, I would like to thank God for guiding me the serenity to be able to continue this journey I’ve been on since childhood. Without Him, nothing I’ve accomplished would have been possible. Also to my friends and family, you’ve been nothing but the best along this journey as well.
To the West Virginia staff, I want to thank you guys for accepting ‘Me’ 3 years ago, a kid from Oak Cliff, Texas, and helping me get closer and closer to my potential each and every day! To Mountaineer Nation, I want to thank you guys for the unconditional love and support these past 3 years. You will forever be a part of me.
To my brothers/teammates, I want to thank y’all for pushing me to be the player you guys knew I could be. The season didn’t play out the way we worked so hard for, but I wouldn’t have wanted to do it with any other group of guys. y’all are my brothers for life.
After discussing my options with my family and coaches, I have decided to enter my name in the 2023 NBA Draft.”
