Caitlin Clark made an announcement the world expected her to on Thursday. The Iowa Hawkeyes superstar declared for the 2024 WNBA Draft.

Clark announced her intentions finally on X, the popular website known as Twitter. She scribed a lengthy message to Hawkeyes fans, alumni, her teammates, and otherwise.


“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 declared.

More from Clark:

“It is impossible for me 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.”

Clark leaves Iowa as one of the most accomplished women’s college basketball players ever. Clark is a Wooden Award winner, Naismith and USBWA National Player of the Year Award winner, a three-time All-American, and a two-time Big Ten Player of the Year. She’s also one of the most prolific scorers in NCAA history, men’s or women’s basketball included.

The Indiana Fever owns the No. 1 pick, so don’t expect a far trip to be necessary for her to make it pro.
