N.C. State sophomore T.J. Warren of Durham announced Tuesday that he will forego his final two seasons of college basketball eligibility and enter the NBA Draft.

The N.C. State sophomore from Durham announced Tuesday that he will forego his final two seasons of college basketball eligibility and enter the NBA Draft.

“I would like to thank my coaches and teammates at NC State for allowing me to compete for this great university,” Warren said in a statement released by N.C. State. “It’s been a fun ride the last few years. I’ve had some great experiences and now I feel I’m ready to play at the next level. Playing in the NBA has been a lifelong dream of mine and playing at N.C. State has prepared me well to achieve my dream.”

Warren played at Durham’s Riverside High School before playing his last two seasons of high school basketball at Raleigh’s Word of God Academy and Brewster Academy in New Hampshire.

After averaging 12.1 points per game as a freshman in 2012-13, Warren emerged as one of the nation’s most prolific scorers this season.

The 6-8 Warren led the ACC by scoring 24.9 points per game, which was the No.3 scoring average in Division I this season. He made an ACC-best 52.5 percent of his field-goal attempts, making him just the third player in ACC history to lead the conference in scoring and rebounding in the same season.
