McGruder attended the University of Kansas, where he spent all four years of his college career, his best year being his junior year, where he shot 80 percent from the free throw line and scored 46 percent from the field. 15.8 points. After graduating, McGruder declared for the NBA draft. He regretted falling behind in the 2013 draft.
80% free throw percentage is something that many players are happy about, but he’s a short guard, barely cracking 80% at best in a year. That played a big part in his undrafting, and it’s a disaster for a guard. Level, until he honed in the Development League for three years before making his first appearance in the NBA’s opener.
