Ankeny, Iowa – The Iowa basketball program announced Thursday afternoon that sophomore guard Isaiah Moss has submitted the paperwork necessary to enter his name into the NBA Draft process. Moss is doing this in order to gauge interest and familiarize himself with the process. He has not hired an agent so this will not impact his ability to return to Iowa to play next season.
The following Tweet is the release that the University of Iowa sent out a few minutes ago:

Moss is the second Hawkeye basketball player to make this decision this offseason. Power forward, Tyler Cook, announced that he would be entering the early draft process several weeks ago.
It is becoming more and more common for players to make this decision because it’s a great way for them to receive feedback from NBA scouts and teams regarding their skills and areas that they need to work on in order to increase their chances of becoming a professional player. Again, it does not have an impact on their eligibility unless they decide to move forward with hiring an agent.
