Dominick Welch will test the NBA Draft waters.
Welch, who recently completed his fourth season with the St. Bonaventure men’s basketball team, announced Friday on his social media accounts that he will enter the draft evaluation process while maintaining his college eligibility.
“I just felt like it was the best and most comfortable position for me right now, to test the waters to see where I’m at,” Welch told the News. “Just trying to go through the process and get that feedback.”
The former Cheektowaga standout is the third player from this season's Bonnies team to announce his intentions, following a season in which St. Bonaventure fielded five senior starters and reached the National Invitation Tournament semifinals, losing 84-77 to Xavier on March 29 in New York. A 6-foot-5 guard, Welch was named to the NIT's all-tournament team after scoring a game-high 25 points against the Musketeers, including 7 for 10 on 3-pointers.
