As expected, Arizona State guard Jahii Carson announced Wednesday he’s leaving the Sun Devils with two years of NCAA eligibility and entering the 2014 NBA draft.

In a statement released by the school, Carson said: “After discussing all my options with my family, teammates and coaches, I have decided to enter the 2014 NBA Draft. My time at ASU has helped me mature as a student, athlete and person and has prepared me to take this next step in my career. I cannot thank Coach Sendek enough for allowing me to be a part of such an incredible Sun Devils community and I look forward to cheering on my teammates and all their future success.”

Carson, a 5-10 point guard, was a two-time All-Pac-12 first team selection and the 2013 Pac-12 Co-Freshman of the Year. He averaged 18.6 points, 4.6 assists and 4.0 rebounds in his sophomore season while leading ASU to a 21-12 record and its first NCAA appearance since 2009.

Carson is considered a second-round pick by Draft Express, while NBAdraft.net projects he will not be drafted.
