Oregon Ducks guard Tyler Dorsey declared for the NBA draft Monday after two years in the program.

He shared the news on his Twitter page:

Dorsey noted in his tweet he plans on entering the draft with an agent, which would eliminate the chance he could return to the Ducks. He declared for the NBA draft after his freshman campaign as well but didn't hire an agent and returned to school.

The playmaker is striking while the proverbial iron is hot after his impressive NCAA tournament run. He helped lead the Ducks to the Final Four and scored at least 20 points in all five of his team's games in the Big Dance:

Dorsey averaged 13.4 points per game as a freshman and 14.6 points per game last season behind 42.3 percent shooting from three-point range.

DraftExpress ranked him No. 51 among NCAA sophomores, but the list only factored in the first weekend of the NCAA tournament.
