Julian Jacobs will declare for the 2016 NBA Draft, leaving USC after his junior season.

Jacobs is considered one of the best athletes in the class.

NBA front-office executives are expecting Jacobs to solidify a second-round selection early in the draft process and potentially raise his stock through team workouts because of his high motor.

Jacobs averaged 11.6 points, a team-high 5.5 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 31 minutes per game in 31 games for the Trojans.
