Oregon's Brooks draft-bound after helping Ducks get to Final Four

Men's College Basketball, Oregon Ducks

Oregon junior Dillon Brooks will declare for the NBA draft and sign with an agent, forgoing his final year of eligibility.

Brooks made the announcement on Instagram.

The 6-foot-7 forward averaged 16.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists this past season after missing the first three games following offseason surgery on his left foot. Brooks told ESPN earlier this month that it was a Jones fracture and that he is fully recovered from the injury.

Brooks helped lead Oregon to the Final Four, where the Ducks lost to North Carolina in the national semifinals.

Several NBA executives told ESPN that Brooks, the Pac-12 Player of the Year, is a likely second-round pick in June's NBA draft.
