The 6-foot-2 guard declared for the NBA Draft after redshirting his first year and then spending two years as Gonzaga’s starting wing.
I have grown so much from my first day at Gonzaga both on and off the court. I’d like to thank Coach (Mark) Few and the entire GU coaching staff for the past three years, and for their support with this decision.
I am excited to have this chance to fulfill my dream. I want to thank my family, teammates, coaching staff and Zags fans for their support.
Norvell started 36 of 37 games for the Zags in 2019 and led the West Coast Conference with 97 3-pointers while shooting 37 percent from behind the arc. The Zags have reached the Elite Eight and Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament when Norvell has played.
At the end of April, Norvell Jr. was one of three Gonzaga players to receive invites to the NBA Draft Combine, which takes place from May 14-19. He’ll join teammates Brandon Clark and Rui Hachimura in Chicago.
