OG Anunoby's NBA dreams became a realization Thursday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, as the Toronto Raptors drafted the former IU forward with the No. 23 overall in the first round of the 2017 NBA Draft.

With the selection, Anunoby became the 25th first-round pick in Indiana men's basketball program history. Additionally, he's the 75th player in program history to be selected in the NBA Draft.

Anunoby also became the first foreign-born Hoosier (England) to be selected in the NBA Draft since Uwe Blab (Germany) in 1985.

Anunoby logged 11.1 points and 5.4 rebounds per game in his second season and final season as a Hoosier. He started in 10 of the 16 games he played in before suffering a season-ending knee injury at Penn State on Jan. 18.

The Jefferson City, Missouri native has made progress in that rehabilitation and is aiming to be ready by November, according to multiple reports, but no timeline has been publicly specified beyond that.
