Arkansas guard Moses Moody is expected to attend the 2021 NBA Draft Combine this month.

Moody, a Little Rock native who was named SEC freshman of the year in 2021, is one of 69 players expected to participate. The combine will be held June 21-27 in Chicago, and the draft is set for July 29.

According to the NBA release, players will conduct interviews with teams and participate in five-on-five games, shooting and strength and agility drills from June 22-25. ESPN2 (June 24) and ESPNU (June 25) will provide coverage of the five-on-five games from 2-6 p.m.

Moody, who declared for the draft on April 9, became one of six Razorbacks freshmen to lead his team in scoring, joining Joe Johnson, Jonathan Modica, Scotty Thurman, Patrick Beverley and George Kok. Seven of the freshman’s nine 20-plus point performances came against SEC competition.

Moody is the fifth Arkansas player to be invited to the combine since 2015, joining Isaiah Joe, Mason Jones, Jaylen Barford and Daniel Gafford.

The guard is the 18th-best available player in this year's draft, according to ESPN draft analysts Jonathan Givony and Mike Schmitz.

Other SEC players expected to attend are Brandon Boston (Kentucky), Sharife Cooper (Auburn), Isaiah Jackson (Kentucky), Keon Johnson (Tennessee), Herbert Jones (Alabama), Scottie Lewis (Florida), Tre Mann (Florida), John Petty (Alabama), Yves Pons (Tennessee), Joshua Primo (Alabama), Jaden Springer (Tennessee), Cameron Thomas (LSU), JT Thor (Auburn) and Trendon Watford (LSU).
