Duke freshman basketball player RJ Barrett has announced his intentions to go to the NBA.
Barrett tweeted a video giving thanks to Duke and declared he'll be entering the 2019 NBA draft.
"I want to thank God, my family, my coaches and everyone that has helped me reach this decision," Barrett tweeted.
A first-team All-ACC selection, a consensus first-team All-American, and the USA Today National Player of the Year, Barrett was tied for the ACC lead in scoring with classmate Zion Williamson at 22.6 points per game.
Barrett broke both the Duke and ACC freshman scoring records with 860 points, and finished with the second most points by a Duke player in a single season, trailing only the 941 points by J.J. Redick in his 2006 senior campaign.
