Jaylyn Sherrod declaring for WNBA draft

With her college career now complete, Colorado women’s basketball point guard Jaylyn Sherrod announced Monday she’ll be declaring for the 2024 WNBA draft.

The Alabama native started in a school-record 133 games throughout her five years with the Buffs, finishing with the 14th-most career points in program history (1,483) and the second-most assists (645). This past season, which saw Colorado reaching the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 for the second straight year, Sherrod averaged a career-best 12.8 points.

In Sherrord’s announcement on social media, she thanked her Colorado teammates and coaches before detailing her professional basketball aspirations.

“Although my time is done at CU, there is always more to achieve and goals to accomplish,” Sherrod wrote on X. “With that being said, that kid from Pratt City, Alabama, is declaring for the WNBA draft. As always, it’s forever WILL/SKILL.”

This year’s WNBA draft is set for April 15 in Brooklyn, New York. A total of 36 players will be selected in the three-round draft.

Mya Hollingshed, Sherrod’s former teammate, remains the last CU player to be drafted into the WNBA, going eighth overall to the Las Vegas Aces in 2022.
