After suffering a heartbreaking defeat at the hands of the eventual National Champion Tar Heels in the Final Four, Oregon Ducks F Dillon Brooks has decided to forgo his senior season, opting to declare for the NBA draft and hire an agent.

Most mock drafts have Brooks, the Pac-12 Player of the Year, going somewhere in the early to mid 2nd round. But that was enough for the Ducks’ leading scorer to jump ship to greener pastures. Having already lost G Tyler Dorsey to the draft earlier this month, the Ducks now lose their top two scorers on the team. However, it’s not all doom and gloom the Ducks’ faithful, as Oregon boasts a Top 10 recruiting class next year. With other teams such as UCLA facing transition as well, Oregon will once again be one of the favorites to win the Pac-12.
