CHICAGO – A little more than a month ago, Ty Jerome was at the top of the college basketball world after helping to lead Virginia to a national championship.
Now the New Rochelle native and Iona Prep product is on the verge of going to the NBA.
Jerome spent this week at the NBA Draft Combine showing off his skills and meeting with 11 different organizations.
One of those teams is likely going to draft the guard late in the first round.
“It’s been awesome,” Jerome said. “It’s been awesome to just come out here, meet new people, interview with different teams. It’s a new experience but I’m enjoying it a lot.”
