Jalen Brunson is going to spend 12-plus years in the NBA, and he’ll likely win a title as well. The Villanova guard has declared for the 2018 NBA Draft, and is expected to be a late first-round pick.
“After careful consideration and prayer, I have decided to enter the June NBA Draft and hire an agent,” Brunson wrote in an ESPN.com essay.

“It is with great honor and privilege that I have called Villanova University my home for the past three years,” Brunson wrote. “When I decided to commit to Coach Jay Wright and the basketball program, I was driven by three goals: getting my education, competing at the highest level, and winning a national championship.”
Brunson averaged 18.8 points, 4.6 assists, and 3.1 rebounds per game last season. He also shot 40.8 percent on 3-pointers while averaging just 1.8 turnovers in nearly 32 minutes per game.

Brunson will leave Villanova with two NCAA championships, a Big East Player of the Year award, and the Wooden and Naismith National Player of the Year awards in 2018.
