Days after sophomore guard Tyler Dorsey announced he would be leaving Oregon to enter the NBA Draft, Dillon Brooks followed suit, announcing in a video on Positionless.com that he will skip his senior season in Eugene and enter the NBA draft.

Brooks, the 2017 Pac-12 Player of the Year, led the Ducks to their first Final Four since 1939, which included an upset over No. 1 Kansas in the Elite Eight. During his junior campaign, Brooks led the team in scoring, averaging 16.1 points per game to go along with 3.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game.

During his three years with the Ducks, Brooks averaged 14.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game and was a vital part to Oregon’s success in recent years.

Brooks has hired an agent, which means that he has reached the point of no return, so to speak. Now that he’s hired an agent, Brooks cannot return to Oregon. Currently, a player has a period of 10 days after the NBA draft combine to withdraw from the draft and return to school. But once a player signs an agent, he forfeits his amateur status and cannot return to school.
