Young Announces He’s Leaving Arkansas For The NBA

Sophomore guard BJ Young announced via twitter on Thursday he plans to enter the NBA draft.

 

Young, who led Arkansas in scoring this season at 15.1 points per game, is the second Razorback this week to leave early for the draft. Forward Marshawn Powell announced Tuesday he will skip his senior season and enter the draft.

Young finished No. 11 on our list of the SEC’s most productive basketball players this season.

Arkansas coach Mike Anderson released a statement Thursday following a meeting with Young:

“This is his dream and as a coach I encourage him to pursue that dream.”

The departure of Powell and Young leaves forward Coty Clarke as Arkansas’ leading scorer next season. He averaged 7.6 points per game as a junior.

SEC Early Entrants 2013

nfl-draft-podium-tightThe NFL early entry deadline had come and gone and SEC teams took quite a hit.  Not surprising considering the SEC leads the nation in recruiting rankings every February and in NFL draft picks every April.  With that much talent in SEC programs, there will always be a number of stars leaving prior to their senior seasons.

In all, 33 players from the league submitted their paperwork to the NFL for early entry into the draft.  More could have changed their mind at the last minute, but for now we know of 33.  That number includes former LSU star Tyrann Mathieu who did not play with the Tigers in 2012 due to a suspension.

SC HC Spurrier said in his press conference that if they are going to beat Arkansas, they better play better pass defense as they gave up 300 yds to Tennessee last week and are allowing opposing QB’s to complete better than 65% against them. SC does control its own destiny in the SEC East, but has the “SEC East Championship” on deck (at FL). SC RB Lattimore rushed for a career high 184 rush yds LW (722, 4.8) after returning from inj and QB Garcia is avg 238 ypg (71%) with a 13-7 ratio and WR Jeffery leads the SEC in receiving (52, 18.0). Ark QB Mallett is avg 306 ypg, 66%, 18-7) and the Razorbacks are off a 49-14 win over Vandy in which Mallett set a UA record with 409 pass yds. Points should be plentiful in a close gm but I will go with the home team.
