Jeanne ranked as the 22nd overall prospect on SI's most recent draft Big Board.

The last NBA player to be diagnosed with Marfan syndrome was Baylor star Isaiah Austin, who found out four days before the NBA Draft that his basketball career was over. The Vertical reports that he is not expected to be cleared before the draft.
