Michigan State men's basketball senior forward Gabe Brown is expected to forego his final year of eligibility and enter the NBA draft and sign with an agent, according to Jonathon Givony of ESPN and Chris Solari of The Detroit Free Press.

Brown was the emotional leader and captain for the 2021-22 MSU team that finished the season 23-13 and was bounced from the second round of the NCAA tournament. Brown averaged 11.6 points and shot 38% from three in his final season in the green and white.

Brown was one of three seniors with an option to return for an extra season because of the additional year of eligibility afforded to athletes because of COVID-19. Brown will not be using the extra year of eligibility. Fellow seniors Marcus Bingham Jr. and Joey Hauser have not made a decision yet regarding their final year of eligibility.
