Millville, NJ, Native Justin Mutts declares for NBA Draft

Former St. Augustine Prep Hermits basketball star and Millville native, Justyn Mutts has announced that he is entering the 2022 NBA Draft but will retain his college eligibility.

Mutts and his Virginia Tech teammates had a great run this season, winning the ACC Men’s Basketball Tournament before being knocked out of the first round of the NCAA Tournament by the Texas Longhorns.

Mutts, has one more year of eligibility, thanks to the “free” year of eligibility due to COVID-19, leaving the door open for a return to Blacksburg next season.

Mutts wrote the following message via social media:

Mutts retains his eligibility, with the option of returning to Blacksburg for another season, if he receives feedback that he won’t be drafted.

He could also leave school to start a professional career abroad.
