WEST LAFAYETTE — Purdue's Zach Edey announced on Tuesday via Twitter his intentions to enter the NBA Draft.

The 2022-23 consensus National Player of the Year noted he will maintain his college eligibility while going through the draft process. Edey swept all six National Player of the Year Awards, along with countless other awards for his accomplishments this season.

According to Purdue Athletics, he became the first player in NCAA history (since blocks became an official NCAA stat) to record at least 750 points, 400 rebounds, 70 blocks and 50 assists in a season, ranking sixth nationally in scoring, second in rebounds, 19th in blocked shots and 21st in field goal percentage (.607), the only player in the NCAA database to rank in the top 25 of all four categories in the same season.
