Duke freshman Marvin Bagley III officially declared for the 2018 NBA Draft on Wednesday.

A potential No. 1 pick in June, the 6-foot-11 Bagley was an All-American this season for the Blue Devils after putting up 21.0 points, 11.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game in his only college season.

The bouncy lefty shot 61 percent from the field and 39 percent from three-point range this season at Duke.

Duke is expected to lose multiple freshmen from its star-studded group as others like Wendell Carter, Trevon Duval and Gary Trent Jr. are also on the NBA’s radar. Those three freshmen still have yet to publicly announce their intentions for next season.
