B.J. Young To Enter NBA Draft

Arkansas guard B.J. Young announced today that he will forgo his final two years of college eligibility and enter the NBA draft, according to Matt Jones of the Northwest Arkansas News.

Young, 19, averaged 15.2 PPG and 3.4 APG in his sophomore year with the Razorbacks. Various draft experts project Young as a borderline first-round pick this year, with Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress.com ranking him 27th overall and ESPN.com's Chad Ford placing him 34th. Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com expects the combo guard to be an early second-round pick (Twitter link).

It's not clear whether or not Young will hire an agent. A year ago, he declared his intent to enter the draft, but didn't hire an agent and eventually withdrew, regaining his NCAA eligibility.
