Michigan Wolverines freshman guard Jett Howard has declared for the 2023 NBA Draft and will forgo his remaining college eligibility. He is the son of former NBA player and current Michigan Wolverines Head Coach Juwan Howard. Howard came onto the scene this past season and was a force in the Big Ten. While Michigan did not reach the 2023 NCAA Tournament, it did play in the NIT this season. Howard quickly shot up NBA Draft boards this past college basketball season and will be a college basketball “one and done”. He will join the league his dad played in next season.

Throughout the course of the season, Jett Howard has been mocked to go in some different places but has risen some during that time. He should be at least a top-20 pick with a real shot at being a lottery or even top-ten selection in the 2023 NBA Draft. The sons of former NBA players don’t always work out, but Howard has all the tools to be a great NBA player.
In his one season with the Michigan Wolverines, Jett Howard averaged 14.2 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game. He paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 41.4 percent and a three-point percentage of 36.8 percent. Howard has earned a shot at playing in the league his father did, and this Fall he will prove what he’s capable of in the league.
