Collin Sexton made the announcement that we all expected on Friday morning: He is declaring for the NBA draft, and he is planning on signing with an agent.

Sexton announced at a press conference.

A top ten prospect coming out of high school, Sexton averaged 19.2 points and 3.6 assists as a freshman. He is a potential top ten pick and thought to be one of the best guards in the draft, along with Trae Young of Oklahoma.

When he was in high school, Sexton was not considered an elite recruit until the end of his junior season. We wrote about his growth from underrated to five-star superstar last summer.

Sexton was held out of competition for the first game of Alabama’s season after he was caught up in the FBI’s investigation into corruption in college basketball.
