Arizona State’s Jahii Carson Declares For NBA Draft
This comes as no surprise.
Carson said before the season that this would be his last year at Arizona State. The 5-foot-11 point guard was a first team PAC-12 selection both seasons.
This year he led the Sun Devils to their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2009.
“After discussing all my options with my family, teammates and coaches, I have decided to enter the 2014 NBA Draft,” Carson announced. “My time at ASU has helped me mature as a student, athlete and person and has prepared me to take this next step in my career. I cannot thank Coach Sendek enough for allowing me to be a part of such an incredible Sun Devils community and I look forward to cheering on my teammates and all their future success.”
Carson averaged 18.6 points, 4.6 assists and 4 rebounds a game this season. Most mock drafts have him going in the early to mid second round.
