It's official, Andrew Wiggins is turning pro. The Kansas Jayhawks star freshman forward declared for the 2014 NBA Draft on Monday, per ESPN.

Wiggins made the announcement in a news conference at Allen Fieldhouse.

"This wasn't an easy decision for me," he said. "College goes by so fast. I can see why people stay all four years."

Wiggins spent only one season at Kansas. Many say he could have been the top pick of the draft had he been able to come straight out of high school.

The Canadian native averaged 17.1 points and 5.9 rebounds per game this season. His Jayhawks were defeated in the tournament to the Stanford Cardinal in a surprising upset.

The 6-foot-8 forward is still considered the top pick of the draft, but will likely still have to battle for that claim as the months go by with the likes of Duke's Jabari Parker (if he declares, hasn't yet) and teammate Joel Embiid.
