Florida junior Michael Frazier II declares for 2015 NBA Draft

Florida guard Michael Frazier II will be leaving school early and entering the NBA Draft, Frazier announced on Twitter.

Frazier averaged 12.1 points as a junior, shooting 38.0 percent from three in a year where the Gators struggled mightily. Florida went just 16-17 this season, losing a number of close games and missing out on the NIT all together.

Frazier holds the Florida record for three-pointers made in a game — he hit 11 in a 37 point performance in 2013-2014 — and he played for Team USA in a U19 tournament after his freshman season. But Frazier suffered a high-ankle sprain in Florida’s loss to Kentucky in Gainesville this season, forcing him to miss seven games. He was not the same player when he returned.

Draft Express had Frazier rated as a potential second round pick in the 2016 NBA Draft prior to his announcement, although his athleticism, shooting ability and 6-foot-9 wingspan will make him an interesting prospect heading into the draft.
