Despite an initial report that Kofi Cockburn had been invited to the NBA Combine, Adam Zagoria now says the Illini’s big man has not.

Zagoria did confirm that Ayo Dosunmu did receive an invite.

On Monday, Zagoria reported the rising sophomore did receive an invite.

Despite not being invited, he can stay in the Draft. Cockburn will have until Aug. 3 to pull his name out and retain his college eligibility.

The 7-footer averaged 13.3 points and 8.8 rebounds in his freshman season with the Illini.
