Iowa’s Caitlin Clark announced she will enter the 2024 WNBA draft on social media Thursday.

Clark has spent four seasons at Iowa and had one more season of eligibility remaining due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She is the favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick.

“While this season is far from over and we have a lot more goals to achieve, it will be my last one at Iowa. I am excited to be entering the 2024 WNBA Draft,” Clark wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Clark thanked her family, friends, teammates and fans as well as the Iowa coaching and training staff in her post.

“It is impossible to fully express my gratitude to everyone who has supported me during my time at Iowa — my teammates, who made the last four years the best; my coaches, trainers, and staff who always let me be me; Hawkeye fans who filled Carver every night; and everyone who came out to support us across the country, especially the young kids. Most importantly, none of this would have been possible without my family and friends who have been by my side through it all. Because of all of you, my dreams came true.”

The Indiana Fever have the first overall pick in the draft this year for the second consecutive year. The Fever selected South Carolina’s Aliyah Boston first overall last year.

What records has Caitlin Clark broken?

Clark’s announcement comes one day after the Iowa star dropped 33 points against Minnesota to pass Lynette Woodard’s 3,649 career points and become the leading women’s scorer in major college basketball, according to ESPN. In that game, she also broke the single-season NCAA women’s 3-point record with 156.

But there is an asterisk next to Wednesday’s scoring record. Pearl Moore, who played in the AIAW at Francis Marion, is the overall record holder with 3,884 points.

Clark became the NCAA’s all-time leading women’s scorer two weeks ago, passing Kelsey Plum, as the Deseret News previously reported.
