USC freshman Onyeka Okongwu is entering the 2020 NBA draft, he told ESPN on Wednesday.
"I am declaring for the draft, forgoing my final three years of school [and] planning on signing with an agent in the near future," Okongwu wrote in a text message.
Okongwu, the No. 6 prospect in the ESPN Top 100, emerged as one of the top big men in college basketball while earning All-Pac-12 first-team honors.
"These past couple weeks have been crazy, but I'm happy to be able to be able back home in Chino under quarantine with my family," Okongwu told ESPN. "Every fitness center and gym is closed, so besides being at home doing things, I haven't really been able to work out as much."
