USC junior guard Julian Jacobs will declare for the 2016 NBA draft and is contemplating his representation decision, league sources told The Vertical.
Jacobs informed USC coach Andy Enfield of his decision to leave school on Wednesday, sources said.
The 6-foot-4 Jacobs is one of the top athletes in the 2016 draft class. NBA front-office executives are expecting Jacobs to solidify a second-round selection early in the draft process and potentially raise his stock through team workouts because of his high motor.
Jacobs averaged 11.6 points, a team-high 5.5 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 31 minutes per game in 31 contests this season while being named first-team All-Pac-12. USC lost to Providence in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
