In January, Jaylin Williams started putting together terrific performances. That included stringing double-doubles nearly every night.

If you’re like me and went to sleep at before nine, you likely missed seeing Jaylin Williams chosen with the 34th pick, very-early second round, by Oklahoma City.

Hog fans should be proud of the young man and as he continues to develop into a very good ball player that can stretch the floor, rebound and bring toughness to the Thunder.

Jaylin averaged just short of a double-double this season for the Hogs: 10.9 ppg and 9.8 reb.

Also, what an oddity that Jalen Williams of Santa Clara was chosen by OKC w/ the 12th pick.

For Arkansas, this is the fourth straight draft a former player has been drafted. Daniel Gafford (2019), Mason Jones and Isaiah Joe (2020), Moses Moody (2021) and Williams (2022).
