Jeremy Lamb has decided that he will forgo his final two years of college and declare for the 2012 NBA draft.
"It was a difficult decision, but after much prayer and discussion with my parents, I feel that it's in the best interest of me and my family to declare myself eligible for the upcoming NBA Draft and pursue my dream of playing professional basketball," Lamb said. "I have very much enjoyed my two years at UConn, especially getting to experience one of the greatest feelings that a college player can have, winning the national championship."
Lamb, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard, averaged 17.7 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.
"I have learned a lot, both on and off the basketball court as well as in the classroom, and I feel as if I'm ready to take the next step in my basketball career," Lamb said. "I intend to successfully complete the current semester academically as I get prepared for the draft."
