Abdul Ado (24)

Mississippi State center Abdul Ado has entered the National Basketball Association Draft, the Starkville Daily News confirmed Thursday. However Ado isn’t signing with an agent so he’ll maintain his college eligibility and a source indicated Ado will most likely still be a Bulldog for what would be his senior season in 2020-21.

It’s not unusual for undergraduates to enter the draft only to pull out later. Entering the draft will allow Ado to get valuable feedback from NBA teams on how those teams view Ado and what things Ado needs to work on to improve his game.
