Villanova standout Jeremiah Robinson-Earl announced Friday that he is declaring for the NBA draft.
Robinson-Earl, the co-Big East Player of the Year this season as a sophomore, said he will forego his remaining college eligibility.
“After meaningful conversation with Coach (Jay) Wright, family and my trusted circle, I have decided to sign with an agent and declare for the 2021 Draft,” Robinson-Earl wrote in a post on Twitter. “That being said, the last two years at Villanova have allowed me to grow in so many ways, as both a person and as a player. I am forever grateful to Coach Wright and the entire staff, my teammates/brothers, the faculty and all of Nova Nation.”
Robinson-Earl, a 6-foot-9 forward, recorded team-leading averages of 15.7 points and 8.5 rebounds in 25 games this season for the Wildcats.
He averaged 10.5 points and a team-best 9.4 rebounds in 2019-20 in 31 contests when he was the Big East Freshman of the Year.
In 56 career games (all starts) for Villanova, Robinson-Earl averaged 12.8 points and 9.0 rebounds. He also had 59 steals, 33 blocked shots and 44 3-point baskets.
