Tyler Ennis declares for NBA draft

Draft experts predict Ennis will be drafted in the middle of the first round.

Less than a week after losing in the third round of the NCAA Tournament, Tyler Ennis announced he will be declaring for the 2014 NBA draft.

“I’d like to thank Coach Boeheim, the coaching staff, my teammates and the amazing fans of Syracuse for the opportunity to play at a great university like Syracuse,” Ennis said. “I feel this experience has helped prepare me to fulfill my lifelong dream – to play in the NBA.”

Even though he was only a freshman, Ennis gave fans multiple moments of excitment during his 34-game stint with the Orange; None more exciting than his game-winning buzzer-beating three-pointer against Pittsburgh.

Ennis started every game for the Orange this season, averaging 12.9 points-per-game, 5.5 assists-per-game and only 1.7 turnovers-per-game. Many draft experts expect Ennis will be picked in the mid-first round. Kaleb Joseph, a 6-foot-3-inch point guard from Nashua, N.H., looks to replace Ennis next season when he comes in as a freshman next season.
