Chattanooga Mocs men’s basketball star point guard Malachi Smith will enter his name in the 2022 NBA Draft and forgo his remaining eligibility after announcing his intentions on Tuesday.  

Smith tests the NBA Draft waters for the second straight off-season after going through the workout and scout feedback process last year. He will leave Chattanooga as one of the most accomplished players in the program’s rich history.  

“Chattanooga nation, I’ll always love and forever appreciate you guys. You welcomed me with open arms the moment I stepped on campus,” said Smith in a thank you video released on Twitter.
