TCU junior guard Mike Miles Jr. announced Wednesday morning that he will be forgoing the remainder of his eligibility and entering his name into the 2023 NBA Draft. Miles becomes the second Horned Frog player to declare for the draft this offseason after senior forward Emanuel Miller reportedly entered his name while maintaining his eligibility. Miles led TCU in scoring this season, averaging 17.9 points per game and shooting 49.7 percent overall.

Miles earned Second-Team All-Big 12 recognition despite missing eight games due to injuries this season. The junior guard from Highland Hills shot a career-best from the field and from 3-point range (36.2 percent). Miles spent three seasons with the Horned Frogs, leading TCU to consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances over the last two years. Miles earned First-Team All-Big 12 honors as a sophomore after garnering an All-Big 12 Honorable Mention during his freshman season, when he made the All-Big 12 Freshman Team.
