Boston College guard Ky Bowman announced Tuesday that he is skipping his senior season to enter the NBA Draft. Bowman made the announcement on Instagram.

“It has laways been a lifelong dream of mine to play in the NBA,’’ Bowman wrote. “After much thought and consideration with my family, I have decided to declare for the 2019 NBA Draft and take the next step towards achieving my dream.

“I am forever grateful to Boston College, my teammates, coaches, classmates and fans for the experience, support and opportunity to play the game I love for such a great school.

“While I am excited to get to work and start the next chapter in my career, I will hold dear the memories and lessons from my time at BC. I will always be proud to be an Eagle.’’


Bowman averaged 19.2 points per game for the Eagles (14-17) this past season to earn All-ACC second team honors. It is the second year in a row that a Boston College player will enter the draft one year early. In 2018, guard Jerome Robinson declared for the draft, and was selected 13th overall by the Los Angeles Clippers.
