University of Alabama junior forward Herbert Jones announced via Instagram that he’s declaring for the 2020 NBA Draft:
Jones says he’s declaring while maintaining his eligibility, meaning he could get feedback and choose to return to school.
In his third campaign with the Crimson Tide, Jones turned his best collegiate season. The six-foot-seven forward scored 7.9 points on 48.4% shooting. He also grabbed 6.4 rebounds per game. Jones was also one of Alabama’s best defensive players.
Alabama has also seen starting guard Kira Lewis and John Petty Jr. declare for the draft.
Lewis is expected to be a first-round pick, while Petty and Jones are considered to be late second-round talents.
