NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma star freshman Trae Young is leaving for the NBA after a standout season.

The 6-foot-2 guard averaged 27.4 points and 8.7 assists this season, and many projections have him going early in the first round. He posted the reasons for his decision on ESPN early Tuesday, saying he was ready to put in the work needed to play in the NBA.

Young ended the regular season as the national leader in both scoring and assists. He closed the season with 28 points and seven assists in Oklahoma’s 83-78 overtime loss to Rhode Island in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
