Aaron Holiday is off to the pros.

The UCLA junior announced Monday that he will forego his senior season and declare for the NBA draft.

“After much thought and consideration, my family and I feel it is in my best interest to declare for the 2018 NBA draft,” Holiday wrote on social media. “I want to thank God for giving me the ability to play this sport. I also want to thank my family, my coaches , UCLA, and the fans for always supporting me.”

While Holiday didn’t specify whether or not he’d hire an agent and retain his eligibility, Jon Rothstein reported.

Holiday averaged 20.3 points per game this past season while shooting 46.1 percent from the floor and 42.9 percent from 3-point range. He also tallied 5.8 assists and 3.7 rebounds.
