Graduate student and forward for the Georgetown Hoyas, Chudier Bile, has declared himself eligible for the NBA Draft and announced he will forgo his fifth year of NCAA eligibility.

Bile joins Jahvon Blair and Jamorko Pickett in deciding to join the professional ranks and move on from Georgetown after their BIG EAST Tournament championship.

Based on the below Tweet, it appears that Bile will be represented by Shayaun Saee of One Legacy Sports.

Chudier Bile averaged 10.2 ppg and 5 rebounds for the season, with Bile averaging 11 points with 4.8 rebounds in conference play, making 25 of 58 three-point attempts (43%).

After a bit of a slow start to the season, Bile was a huge part of the solid February for the Hoyas and terrific BIG EAST Tournament run. His aggressiveness on offense and on the boards, as well as some tough defense, were difference-makers in several big games. In fact, there were very few games that Georgetown won and Chudier Bile was not a driving force or playing well. Bile helped the Hoyas with 17 points in their win at Creighton.

Bile was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll twice during the season—after the comeback against Providence in January and defeating Xavier in March.

In the BET championship game, Bile led the Hoyas with a game-high 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting from the floor. He made three 3-pointers and grabbed eight rebounds, with a pair of blocks.

Prior to Georgetown, Bile played his senior season at Northwestern State, earning Second-Team All-Southland Conference honors and leading team with 14.3 ppg, 7.6 rpg and 41 blocks. He transferred to NSU from Bradley after playing two years at Otero Junior College, averaging 12.4 ppg and 6.0 rpg, while shooting 54.9 percent from the field and 35.8 percent from 3-point range.

As a Hoya, Bile will be remembered as the catalyst for the Hoyas’ post-covid-pause efforts and a great transfer addition for Patrick Ewing. He will be forever remembered as a key part of a championship and tournament team.

While most Hoyas fans had predicted Bile not returning, his ability to defend the power forward and shoot and rebound well would have been welcome on the roster—especially considering he would not have counted for the scholarship limit.

Best of luck, Chudi! HOYA SAXA!
