(((2-shot))) welcome back aboard the express...big news out of the big leagues today - burns ready for the next step - officially declaring for the n- b-a draft.

Raiders head coach matt langel calls it a story book career, spence.

The patriot league player of the year is ready to potentially live out his childhood dream of playing in the big leagues.

Earlier this week, burns announced on social media that he is entering the 2021 n-b-a draft and has signed with roger montgomery and the montgomery sports group.

-- this season the san antonio texas native led colgate in scoring, steals, and assists becoming the program's all- time leading scorer.

-- spencer there's no doubt that his career in hamilton will go down as one of the greats.

-- following the raiders patriot league title win in march - the second in three seasons - burns said that he was grateful for coach langel taking a chance on him and hopes that n-b-a scouts do the same.

Jordan burns: i think all i need is an opportunity to show people what i can do, how hard i'm willing to work, the leadership traits that i'm willing to bring to the table i think having one opportunity.

That's all you need.

You can only go to one team, you can only play for one team so all i need is one guy.

If i can get somebody to believe in me then i think they'll reap the benefits of that.

Chelsea well we hope that one team is up here in new york, texas has an extra team fighting in this jordan burns battle though.

We wish him all the best in his draft process.

Shooting 50% from 3 - from off of the bench.

-- something tells me that we should expect that he'll be a starter next year.

(((2-shot))) that's it for us... we'll see you back here next friday night for another edition of sports express!
