Forward Arnett Moultrie won’t return to Mississippi State for his senior year.
Moultrie announced his intention on Wednesday to enter the NBA Draft and sign with an agent, which would end his college career.
“I have enjoyed my time at Mississippi State University and I will never forget the people I met and got to know,” Moultrie said. “Keep me in your prayers and I will keep Bulldog Nation in mine.”
There’s still a chance Moultrie could keep his college options open, according to Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com. Parrish cites sources saying Moultrie is considering, on some level, the idea of graduating from Mississippi State, entering a graduate program at another school and applying for a waiver to finish his career elsewhere.
Parrish also wrote on twitter he thinks it’s unlikely Moutlrie, who has yet to sign the paperwork with an agent, will decide to remain in college.
Let me be clear: I fully expect Arnett Moultrie in the draft. I’m just telling you that other option has been discussed with him.

One thing is certain: Moultrie’s time at Mississippi State is finished.
