Tyler Dorsey is headed to the NBA Draft.
The 6-foot-4 sophomore guard from Oregon will sign with an agent, effectively ending his college career. He is not currently projected to be drafted by DraftExpress.com. Sources said he has yet to settle on an agent.
“After this great college experience, I believe this is the time to pursue my dream of an NBA career and I am now announcing my intention to declare for the 2017 NBA Draft with an agent,” he said on Twitter. “I have carefully deliberated this decision with my family and feel the timing is now right to pursue my path to a professional basketball career.”
Dorsey averaged 14.6 points and 3.5 rebounds as Oregon reached the Final Four, losing to North Carolina in the national semifinals.
Juniors Dillon Brooks and Jordan Bell have yet to announce their future plans.
