Arizona's Jerrett going pro

Arizona freshman forward Grant Jerrett has decided to enter the 2013 NBA Draft.

Jerrett averaged 5.2 points and 3.6 rebounds in 34 appearances (two starts) this past season. He also shot 40.5 percent from beyond the arc for the Wildcats, who reached the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament.

"Today, with the support of my family, I made the decision to enter the 2013 NBA Draft and pursue my lifelong dream of playing professional basketball," said Jerrett. "I would like to thank all Wildcat fans, my teammates and coaches for making my year in Tucson an incredible experience. I will forever be an Arizona Wildcat."

Jerrett is the 15th Arizona player to declare early for the NBA Draft since 1984. Derrick Williams was the last Wildcats player to leave early in 2011.
