Mississippi State guard Quinndary Weatherspoon received an invitation to the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago from May 15-19.
Weatherspoon has already participated in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament in mid-April along with teammate Aric Holman. Sports Illustrated wrote that Weatherspoon was “perhaps the top all-around talent at the tournament” and “should be viewed as a draftable player”.
"Q did exceptionally well," said MSU coach Ben Howland. "I got a number of calls from some NBA scouts that were very impressed."
The 6-foot-4, 205-pounder from Canton was the Bulldogs’ leading scorer the last three years and averaged 15.4 points per game during his college career.
MSU has not had a player drafted in the NBA since Arnett Moultrie was selected 27th overall in 2012.
