Bruno Fernando is one of the more intriguing 2019 NBA Draft prospects. Fernando really established himself as a future prospect by leading Angola to the FIBA Africa Under 18 championship and took home the MVP honors. After playing at Montverde Academy in Florida, he eventually committed to Mark Turgeon’s Maryland Terrapins. Fernando had an impressive freshman campaign, where he averaged 10.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game, and earned All-Big Ten Freshman honors.
After testing the NBA Draft waters, Fernando came back to Maryland and enjoyed a stellar sophomore season. Bruno averaged a double-double with 13.6 points and 10.6 rebounds for the Terps. He led them to a first-round NCAA Tournament win over a pesky Belmont team before falling short to LSU. Despite Maryland falling short of Sweet Sixteen expectations, Fernando improved his game enough where he decided to stay in the 2019 NBA Draft. Let’s take a look at how Fernando stacks up as a prospect in the 2019 NBA Draft.
