Omer Yurtseven told Scout.com on Tuesday that he will declare for the draft but left open the possibility of returning to N.C. State next season.
Yurtseven, a 7-footer from Turkey, had a difficult freshman season. He missed the first nine games of the season after the NCAA reviewed his amateur eligibility. He had played the previous three seasons for a pro club in Turkey before committing to the Wolfpack last May.
Yurtseven was projected by some NBA draft sites as a first-round pick before the season started.
