2021 five-star guard Jaden Hardy is officially headed to the NBA G League.
After Shams Charania of The Athletic broke the news earlier today, the consensus top-three prospect confirmed the news in an announcement on Instagram Live late Saturday evening.
“I have decided to forgo college, turn pro and play for the NBA G League Team Ignite,” Hardy announced.

Unsurprisingly, had he turned down the professional route, Hardy says Kentucky was among the top contenders to land his services.
