Arkansas’ BJ Young Headed for NBA Draft
Arkansas guard BJ Young said Thursday he will enter the 2013 NBA Draft, forgoing his final two years of eligibility with the Razorbacks.
Young led Arkansas with 15.2 points per game and 104 assists as a sophomore, and was voted second-team all-Southeastern Conference. He joins forward Marshawn Powell as players to declare for the draft this off-season.
“This is his dream and as a coach I encourage him to pursue that dream,” Arkansas coach Mike Anderson said in a statement.
