Sophomore guard BJ Young announced via twitter on Thursday he plans to enter the NBA draft.
I will be officially entering the 2013 NBA #DRAFT thank you ARKANSAS for everything I have unconditional love for this place and people here

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.
