David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Murray State superstar Ja Morant will reportedly declare for the 2019 NBA Draft during a special press conference at his school on Wednesday, per Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

As Charania mentions, Morant is projected to be the second pick of the draft behind only Zion Williamson by many who cover the annual event.

His incredible triple-double against Marquette in the NCAA Tournament opened up a lot of eyes to his true potential.

At 6-foot-3 and 175 pounds, he’s quite a dynamic guard who can do it all. This past season at Murray State, Morant averaged 24.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 10.0 assists per game.
