JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Jackson State guard Trey Johnson said Monday he will skip his senior season and enter the NBA draft.
Johnson, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard, ranked 10th nationally with an average of 23.5 points in leading the Tigers to a 15-17 record.
He does not plan to hire an agent, preserving his eligibility. Underclassmen have until June 18 to withdraw from the draft.
Johnson transferred from Alcorn State and set the Jackson State record by making 169 free throws this season. He ranked fifth nationally by making 45 percent of his 3-point attempts.
The draft is June 28.
