UCLA junior Johnny Juzang announced Wednesday on Instagram that he will declare for the 2022 NBA draft and forgo his remaining collegiate eligibility.

Juzang, who was named to the first team All-Pac 12, averaged 15.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists on 36% shooting from 3-point range in 30 games. He led the Bruins in scoring and finished in double figures in all but five games with eight 20-point performances.

The 6-foot-7 guard entered the NBA draft last year but ultimately opted to return to school for the 2021-22 season. He is currently projected to be a second-round pick by most mock drafts after a strong two-year run with the Bruins.

Juzang will have the opportunity to improve his draft positioning by participating in private workouts with teams. He also figures to be a strong candidate to earn an invitation to compete in the draft combine or NBA G League Elite Camp next month.

The NBA draft will take place on June 23.
