    Big 10 Freshman of the Year and Indiana point guard Jalen Hood-Schifino has declared for the NBA Draft, he announced Friday.

    “My freshman season was nothing short of amazing,” Hood-Schifino told ESPN. “My coaches kept their word by having the ultimate trust in me as a freshman. We didn’t win a national championship, but overall the season was successful and experiencing March Madness was a surreal moment.”

    Hood-Schifino averaged 13.5 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 3.7 assists in his freshman campaign with the Hoosiers.

    The 6-foot-6 former five-star recruit is heralded for his ball handling and feel for the game.

    A likely lottery selection, Hood-Schifino also averaged 17.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 3.0 assists in games against AP ranked opponents.
