With the No. 13 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, the Miami Heat will select Tyler Herro out of the University of Kentucky.
“It’s a dream come true,” Herro said on ESPN. “Not too many kids make it from where I’m from… I’m just happy I’m here.”
Herro averaged 14.0 points and 4.5 rebounds per game as Wildcat and also finished with the highest free-throw shooting percentage in program history.
As for his outfit, Herro said he had the “best drip here”.

The former Cat gets picked just one spot after his teammate, P.J. Washington.
Congrats to Herro. Now we wait to hear where Keldon Johnson lands.
