Nearly 90 players declare for WNBA draft, with more to come

With presumptive No. 1 pick Aliyah Boston and other players from Final Four teams still yet to declare for the WNBA draft, there are nearly 90 women's college basketball players who have formally filed for it.

The list of those who declared for the draft Tuesday is headlined by Tennessee guard Jordan Horston and Iowa State center Stephanie Soares, projected as the Nos. 3 and 4 overall picks by ESPN. Others include Haley Jones (Stanford), Grace Berger (Indiana), Ashley Joens (Iowa State), Leigha Brown (Michigan), Lou Lopez Senechal (UConn), Charisma Osborne (UCLA), Sedona Prince (Oregon) and Maddy Siegrist (Villanova).

Maryland guard Diamond Miller, projected as the No. 2 overall pick, joined the list of draft entrants after her Terrapins lost to South Carolina in the Elite Eight on Monday. She was among 13 players to declare for the draft Thursday.

Players in the Final Four have 48 hours after the conclusion of their final game to declare for the draft. Boston, the star forward for South Carolina, has yet to officially declare.

South Carolina has several other potential first- or second-round draftees who could choose to declare: Zia Cooke, Brea Beal and Laeticia Amihere. Virginia Tech's Elizabeth Kitley could also opt to go pro.

The league has been using an opt-in process since college players were granted an additional year of eligibility in 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The WNBA draft will be April 10 at 7 p.m. ET in New York.
