After being named the Pac-12 Player of the Year as a junior, Oregon star Dillon Brooks has declared for the 2017 NBA draft.

Here is Brooks' official announcement video:

Per Andrew Greif of The Oregonian, Brooks has hired an agent and will not be returning to Oregon for his senios season.

Brooks led Oregon in scoring (16.1) and shot a career-high 40.1 percent from three-point range in 2016-17 to help the Ducks reach the Final Four for the first time since 1939.

Bleacher Report NBA draft expert Jonathan Wasserman rated Brooks as the No. 49 prospect in this year's class, noting his "scoring attack, toughness and production make him worth considering" as a second-round pick.
