Sueing spent five seasons at the collegiate level. He started his carrer out at Cal where he averaged 14 points per game over two seasons as the Golden Bears’ centerpiece. He moved on to Ohio State in 2020 where he has been full-time starter for the Buckeyes ever since.
The California-native missed almost the entire 2021-22 season with an abdominal injury, but bounced back with a good senior season. He scored 1,663 career points and was a 30.8 percent career three-point shooter.
“I’m pursuing the dream. It’s always been a lifelong dream of mine. This is what I’ve been working toward,” Seuing told ESPN’s Jeff Borzello.
Sueing was a three-star prospect and the No. 171-ranked recruit in the country from the 2017 cycle out of Mater Dei High School, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, which is a proprietary algorithm that compiles ratings and rankings from all four primary recruiting media services.
More on the 2023 NBA Draft
The 2023 NBA Draft is set to take place on Thursday, June 22, 2023, in Brooklyn at Barclays Center. Round 1 of the draft will be announced by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, while Deputy Commissioner Mark Tatum is expected to handle the second round of picks.
To be eligible for the NBA Draft, players must be at least 19 years in age during the calendar year that the draft is held and at least one NBA season from their high school graduation date, or the date that would have been if they are not graduated. It is not required that player spend that one year playing college basketball, though. Players can play in either college, abroad, or the G League Ignite if they choose so.
While this is a significant change from what the rules once were, players are eligible to enter their names into the NBA Draft pool and explore their options by hiring an agent to go through the process, while still keeping their college eligibility. The deadline to make that move is on April 23 beginning at 11:59 p.m. ET. Players have until June 12 at 5 p.m. ET to withdraw their name from the pool and return to college.
The NBA Draft Lottery will be held on May 16, which is also the start of the NBA Conference Finals.
