Tempe, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Arizona State guard Jahii Carson announced Wednesday his intentions to forgo his final two seasons of eligibility and enter the 2014 NBA Draft.

The 5-foot-10 Carson was named the 2013 Pac-12 Co-Freshman of the Year and earned first team all-conference honors in each of his two seasons with the Sun Devils. The 21-year-old averaged 18.5 points, 4.9 assists and 3.8 rebounds over 68 overall games at Arizona State.

"Jahii and I discussed his decision to enter the NBA Draft, and while our program will miss him, I know he is ready to start his professional career," said Sun Devils head coach Herb Sendek. "Jahii made an incredible impact on our program over the past two seasons and was a huge part of the success we achieved as a team. I know I speak for the entire Sun Devils community when I say we are wishing Jahii and his family all the best in the future."
