Seton Hall big man Angel Delgado is expected to remain in the NBA Draft after previously entering the process without an agent, according to a report from Adam Zagoria of SNY.

The 6-foot-10 Delgado is coming off of a huge junior season in which he was the nation’s leading rebounder after averaging 15.2 points and 13.1 boards per game.

Just missing the All-American teams, Delgado had a double-double in 25 of his final 27 games, with his only non double-double performances coming against Villanova both times.

While Delgado will be one of the draft’s best rebounders, he’ll have to prove himself in other areas like post scoring and post defense in order to get picked in June’s NBA Draft. Even if Delgado doesn’t get picked, he’s the type of hard-nosed big man who could easily find himself on an NBA roster because of his activity on the interior.
