Add Simi Shittu to the list of SEC underclassmen declaring for the NBA Draft. The Vanderbilt freshman just announced he is entering his name into the draft and his career as a Commodore is over.

Shittu didn’t have quite the year he’d hoped at Vanderbilt, averaging 10.9 points and 6.7 rebounds. The one-time Kentucky target was a top 10 recruit coming out of high school but is now ranked No. 81 in ESPN’s list of top 100 draft prospects; however, considering Vanderbilt’s dismal season and the firing of Bryce Drew, it’s not that surprising he’s making the jump.
