BJ Young will enter the NBA draft, forgoing his final two years of eligibility at Arkansas.
“This is his dream and as a coach I encourage him to pursue that dream," Razorbacks coach Mike Anderson said in a statement. "I gave him the pros and cons of his decision and he chose to enter the draft. BJ has become a well-rounded player, leading us in scoring and assists and he became a more active rebounder.”
The 6-foot-3 guard led the Razorbacks in scoring this season at 15.2 points per game and shot 44.9 percent from the floor, including 22.7 percent from the three-point line.
Young is projected as a second-round pick in the June draft.
