On Friday, Arkansas guard Moses Moody announced on ESPN’s “The Jump” that he will sign with an agent and enter the 2021 NBA draft, forgoing his remaining collegiate eligibility.

Moody was named the SEC Freshman of the Year after averaging 16.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists and one steal in 32 games with the Razorbacks. He was one of only three freshmen in the country to average at least 15 points and five rebounds.

The 6-foot-6 guard is widely expected to be a lottery pick in the NBA draft given his ability on both ends of the floor. After converting on 35.8% of his attempts from 3-point range, he projects to be a strong 3-and-D prospect at the next level.

Moody showed at Arkansas that he can be a strong shooter after excelling in catch-and-shoot opportunities and off the dribble. Given his skillset, and ability this year to participate in pre-draft workouts, Moody could even help improve his stock before the draft.

The NBA draft is set to take place on July 29.
