UW’s Isaiah Stewart declares for NBA Draft

Washington freshman Isaiah Stewart declared for the 2020 NBA Draft on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-9 forward earned All-Pac-12 first-team honors in 2019-20 with 17.0 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game in 32 starts for the Huskies.

“After discussions with my family and the coaching staff, and with a great deal of prayer, thought and consideration, I have decided to declare for the 2020 NBA Draft,” Stewart posted on Twitter.

The Rochester, N.Y., native arrived in Seattle as the No. 4 overall recruit in the 2019 ESPN 100 after winning the Naismith Trophy as the national prep player of the year.

Stewart is ranked as the No. 26 draft prospect by ESPN.
