Anfernee Simons, a five-star point guard from IMG Academy, will enter the 2018 NBA Draft instead of spending at least a year in college.

Simons, who is one year removed from high school graduation and turns 19 in June, was a top-10 high school recruit and spent his fifth year at IMG, making him eligible for the draft without having to be one-and-done.
“After discussing the matter with my parents, I have decided to forgo the opportunity to play in the NCAA and to instead enter the NBA draft,” Simons said. “I am very thankful for the support I received at IMG Academy and from the NCAA coaches who recruited me. I am ready and excited to pursue my dream of playing in the NBA.”
Simons was recently named to the prestigious Nike Hoop Summit and Jordan Brand Classic events.

The 6-foot-3 point guard is projected as the No. 23 pick in the draft to the Los Angeles Lakers, per ESPN.com. He had N.C. State and Tennessee among the schools recruiting him for the 2018-19 season.
