Former Arkansas forward Jaylin Williams will almost certainly be taken in the NBA draft Thursday night. The question is where and when.

According to the latest intel gathered by ESPN, Williams will be nabbed by the Oklahoma City Thunder at pick No. 34.

If Williams were to go there, he’d be higher than every Arkansas draft choice the last 14 years other than Moses Moody and Bobby Portis, both of whom went in the first round (and both of whom captured the last two NBA championships).

Back in January, Williams was barely on draft boards. But his breakout season, especially during SEC play, put him on the radar. As recently as May, Williams was tabbed to fall into the mid-40s. An impressive stint at the Scouting Camp has pushed him even higher.

The draft takes place Thursday night beginning at 7 p.m. CT and can be seen on ESPN.
