On Saturday, Oregon State junior forward Eric Moreland announced his intention to declare for the NBA Draft.

Moreland took to Twitter to make the announcement, which was first reported by Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.

The 6-foot-10 Moreland was suspended 12 games during the 2013-14 season but still averaged 8.9 points, 10.3 rebounds and two blocks per game in 20 games for the Beavers.

A native of Houston, Moreland also shot 50 percent from the field last season as well.

Moreland entered his name in the NBA Draft last season, before withdrawing, and his loss hurts Oregon State immensely as the Beavers also lose second-leading scorer and senior Devon Collier and third-leading scorer and senior Angus Brandt from the frontcourt for next season.

With the loss of senior guard Roberto Nelson, Craig Robinson’s team now loses the team’s four leading scorers from the 2013-14 season.
