Adam Flagler Thanks Baylor Nation as He Declares for NBA Draft
Baylor star Adam Flagler is off to the 2023 NBA Draft, he announced Monday, and he has a message for those who have helped him get to this point.
Thank you Baylor Nation.
I first want to thank my Lord and Savior for the imprint that he’s had in every element of my life. Without God, I wouldn’t be where I am today, and I give all the glory to Him. The plan in which he’s had for my life has been unique and special in its own way. And He is far from being finished guiding, protecting and pushing me to live within my purpose.
It has been a memorable ride from the moment I stepped foot on campus until this point now. I truly can’t thank the Baylor family enough for welcoming me with open arms and supporting my teammates and I. It has been a true honor to wear Baylor across my chest and represent the school and Waco community the best way I know how. I want to take a moment to say thank you to my coaches, and teammates for their love, and support.
Through the ups and downs, I have built relationships that will last a lifetime. I’d like to thank my family for being by my side through thick and thin. After much prayer and consideration, I am excited to share that I am declaring for the 2023 NBA Draft. I’m ready to put my best foot forward to achieve a lifelong dream of mine.”
