As the deadline for early entrants to enter their name in the 2022 NBA Draft has come and gone, the field of available players has now taken shape with big names from the ACC to international leagues. Although new NIL legislation and the transfer portal led some prospects back to school for another year, many still opted to test the professional waters.

While some of these athletes retained their college eligibility and will be given the option to return to school for another season before the June deadline, others have foregone that with their eyes set on playing in the NBA.

The ACC brings multiple highly touted prospects into the 2022 NBA Draft, including Duke freshmen Paolo Banchero and AJ Griffin, along with Notre Dame freshman Blake Wesley.

Duke leads the way in the ACC with five early entrants, followed by Wake Forest with four. They are followed the teams with three entrants, including Florida State and NC State. Notre Dame, Syracuse and Virginia Tech produced two prospects. Boston College, Georgia Tech, Miami and North Carolina each had one entry.

While it remains to be seen how many withdraw or how many go in the first round, the conference stands out as one of the most talented from the last season thanks to these players who now look to show off their skills at the next level.
