Loyola senior center Cameron Krutwig will leave the Ramblers and enter the NBA Draft. He made the announcement in a video posted on Twitter and YouTube.

Krutwig quickly became one of the most-familiar faces on the Loyola team that went to the NCAA Final Four in 2018 and the Sweet 16 this season.

This is the latest change for the Loyola program. Drew Valentine became the Ramblers’ new head coach after Porter Moser left to take the job at Oklahoma.

“I feel like I’ve left my imprint on this place and left it better than I found it,” Krutwig said in his announcement video. “I hope for the next generation of Loyola basketball players that they do the same.”

The 6-9, 255-pound Algonquin native was named Missouri Valley Player of the Year this season. His 15 points and seven rebounds per game this season led the Ramblers. He finishes his time at Loyola with a 13.7 point career scoring average and 7.1 rebound average.
