Ty Jerome will hire an agent and leave Virginia for the 2019 NBA Draft.

Jerome is a projected late first round or early second round pick.

"After talking to my family, coaching staff and thinking about it a lot, I've decided to forgo my senior year of college and declare for the 2019 NBA draft," Jerome said in the video. "From Day 1, I always dreamed about playing at this level since I picked up a basketball, playing in the ACC, playing against Duke and [North] Carolina. This program was everything I could have possibly dreamed of."

"He's gone," said one source close to the program.
