Brad Underwood isn’t the only talent that is leaving Oklahoma State this spring.

Jawun Evans, the all-american point guard for the Pokes, will be declaring for the NBA Draft with the expectation that he will be keeping his name in.

“I am going to enter the 2017 NBA Draft,” Evans said in a statement released to ESPN. “I want to Thank Everyone at OSU. This was a tough decision. OSU will forever be in my heart.”

Evans averaged 19.0 points and 6.5 assists this season, leading OSU to a 20-14 season and a spot in the NCAA tournament despite an 0-6 start to league play. He’s projected as a late-first to early-second round pick.
