Onyeka Okongwu is declaring for the 2020 NBA Draft, leaving USC after his freshman season.
“I’m going to forgo my last three years,” Okongwu said.
Okongwu is widely expected to be a lottery pick.
“I honestly have a lot of confidence in myself and I think I established my name this freshman year and I’ve shown that I can play with anyone,” he said. “It gives me more confidence in this decision because I feel like I can develop my game on the next level and really be successful."
“I feel like I can go anywhere in the first round if I keep working during this pre-draft stuff and never lose focus,” he added.
